wiltshire-police-101In an emergency dial 999, for all other enquiries dial the new non emergency number - 101.

The 101 number should be used for all non-emergencies such as: reporting a crime, contacting local officers, getting crime prevention advice, making an appointment with a police officer or making them aware of policing issues in your area. It does not replace 999, which should be used in an emergency, such as when a crime is in progress, when there is danger to life or when violence is being used or threatened.

Calls to 101 cost 15p per call, irrespective of how long that call may last. This applies to landlines and mobile phones. People with hearing or speech impairments are able to use the non emergency textphone number 18001 101.

Wiltshire Police updated its website this summer, to both increase accessibility and make it more interactive for the public to use.
