New '101' non-emergency police number

The Police now have a new standard telephone number for the public to use to contact their local force in non-emergency situations.
It’s intended to be simple to remember, as 101, and calls to it cost a standard 15p per call – irrespective of the time of day or the duration of the call.
In an emergency* you should still call 999
