Force Urge People To Think Before They Dial Following Surge In Unnecessary 999 Calls

18th June 2021 Police Alerts, Update & Messages. 0 Comments

The force is currently receiving a high volume of 999 calls.

In the last month alone 999 calls have shot up from an average of 3,900 per week in May to 4,950 in June. However, it said that 60 per cent of the 999 calls were in fact non-emergency and did not require the urgent attention of officers.

If it is an emergency and life is in danger or a crime is in progress, then please ring 999 immediately. If it is a non-emergency but still requires police assistance then please ring 101 or visit our website to report the incident.

What crime can I report online?

• Criminal justice processes and laws
• Roads policing and motoring
• Rural crime
• Cybercrime and staying safe online
• Licensing

Seconds and minutes are precious in emergency situations and can mean the difference between life and death for those that really need our support.

We have since increased visible patrols to help members of the public connect with our officers and staff if they require help and advice.

Our lines are extremely busy between 12noon and 9pm daily, so please contact us in the right way, for the right incidents.

You can also ring Crimestoppers to report any information about a crime anonymously. Call: 0800 555 111 anytime.
