Did you know that many calls we receive to 101 can be answered by information provided on our website?
Our advice section has information on topics from illegal parking to noise disturbances, speeding to scams. By checking our website before you call, you’ll save time and get the information or contact details you need straight away.
Staff in the Communications Centre currently answer an average of 2,500 calls to 101 each day. Calls to 999 are fewer but always prioritised, with 80% answered inside 10 seconds.
If a crime is occurring now, or has just happened, call 999.
If not, tell us about it via our online secure reporting form www.avonandsomerset.police.uk/report.
You can also report crime anonymously and securely to Crimestoppers via www.crimestoppers.org.uk or by calling 0800 555 111.

We have a number of enquiry offices and desks based in police stations, town halls, council buildings and other shared spaces across the force area.
Use our interactive map to find an enquiry desk near you, with information on opening times.
This feature is part of a campaign to encourage people to think before they call and help reduce demand on the non-emergency 101 line.
