HOW TO CONTACT THE POLICE
In an emergency DIAL 999
For example, a serious car accident, a burglary in progress, vandalism in progress or threatening behaviour likely to lead to injury.
For an emergency response, dial 999 and ask for police. The operator will decide the level of urgency and dispatch a police reponse. They should also keep in touch with you and log your call in a central register for future reference.
Not an emergency - DIAL 0845 600 8000
Not an emergency but requiring a fairly urgent response. For example, to report an empty house that appears to have been broken into; an abandoned car, damage to property or defacing by vandalism.
