Emergency – Call 999
In an emergency, always dial 999 – an emergency is something that needs an immediate response such as there is a danger to life, violence is threatened, serious injury or damage to property or a crime is in progress to give a few examples.
If you are deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired you can report an emergency by text to 999. NOTE: You can only use this service if you have registered your mobile phone.
To register, text ‘register’ to 999 and follow the instructions on the message you receive. If you require more information, please visit: Relay UK
Non Emergencies – Call 101
If it is not an emergency, call 101 if you wish to speak to the Police. A non-emergency might include needing to see an officer by appointment, a crime is not in progress but you have something to report, community issues or general enquiries.
If you are deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired you can use this service by using textphone 18001 101. Again, you will need to have registered your phone as above.
