If you want to contact us when it’s less urgent than 999, you can now call us on 101.
Part of a national programme to make it easier for you to contact your local police, 101 should be used for non-emergencies such as:
reporting a crime that has happened and is not currently in progress
contacting local officers
getting crime prevention advice
making us aware of policing issues in your local area
making an appointment with a police officer
for any other non-emergency
101 does not replace 999, which will continue to be used for emergencies.
If you are deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired, you can textphone us on 18001 101
Calls to 101 from landlines and mobiles cost 15 pence per call, no matter what time of day you call or how long your call lasts.
International callers, those in the UK residing outside of England and Wales and those residing in local force areas currently awaiting access to 101 should call (+44) 01275 818340 to contact Avon and Somerset Police.
