Policing & Emergencies

Avon & Somerset Police now have a non-emergency number – 101.

The roll out of this new non-emergency number was part of a national programme to make it easier for you to contact your local police.  You can also use their website to contact the police.

101 should be used for non-emergencies such as:

  • contacting local officers
  • getting crime prevention advice
  • making the police aware of policing issues in your local area
  • making an appointment with a police officer
  • for any other non-emergency
  • reporting a crime (unless crime is in progress, when you should dial 999)

If you wish to provide information anonymously, you can visit the Crimestoppers website or call the Crimestoppers telephone number 0800 555 111 at any time of the day or night, 365 days of the year.

You can find out about local NeighbourHood Watch schemes on the Avon & Somerset Police site…
