NHS Helpline Call 111 for medical advice but still dial 999 if it is a real emergency
101 is the number to call when you want to contact your local police - when it's less urgent than 999. It is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Call 101 to contact the police to report less urgent crime and disorder or to speak to your local officers. For example, call 101:
- if your car has been stolen
- if your property has been damaged
- if you suspect drug use or dealing in your local area
- to report a minor traffic accident
- to give the police information about crime in your area
- to speak to the police about a general enquiry
In an emergency always call 999.
You should call 999 if:
- a crime is in progress
- someone suspected of a crime is nearby
- there is danger to life
- violence is being used or threatened
If you call 101 but are reporting an emergency, you will be directed to the 999 service.
