101 is the police non-emergency number.
When should the public call 101?
You should call 101 to report less urgent crime or disorder, to contact the police with general enquiries or if you just want to speak to a local officer. This can include -
- If your car has been stolen
- If your property has been damaged
- If you are reporting a minor traffic incident
- If you suspect drug use or dealing
- Giving police information about crime in your area
There is a single flat rate charge of 15 pence, no matter how long the duration of the call is, what time of day it is or whether the call is from a landline or mobile phone.
Emergency - Call 999 and ask for Police, if:
- There is danger to life
- Violence is used or threatened
- A serious crime (violent crime or burglary) is in progress or likely
- A suspect for a serious crime is nearby
- There is a road traffic collision with injury or danger to other road users
- A vulnerable person needs urgent help.
If you are using a mobile phone, it is vital you tell the operator that you require Cheshire Police (rather than North Wales or Merseyside Police).
