National non-emergency number launched

telephone

The national non-emergency number 101 came to North Yorkshire Police on 12th December 2011 and replaces the 0845 60 60 24 7 number. Whilst 999 is a well recognised number used to report emergencies, the 2010 British Crime Survey found that only 54% of the public knew how to contact their local police if they wanted to talk to them about policing, crime or anti-social behaviour.

The introduction of the 101 number will offer the public one easy way to contact their local Police force.

The benefits of this new number include:

Calls from landlines and mobile networks cost 15pence per call, no matter what time of day you call or how long you are on the phone.

101 is available 24 hrs a day

When you call 101, you will be able to speak to the force control room via the automated switchboard and information will be acted upon as quickly as possible.
