The following guidelines will help to ensure we contact the police in the most efficient way
Emergency Calls – 999
Should only be used where police attendance is required immediately such as when a crime is in progress or someone is at risk of attack
Local Police – 101
This number should be used for all other enquires including reporting crimes which have already happened (e.g. stolen car / property damage), where there is no sign of an offender. Also, for general police information and advice
Meeting a police officer
If you wish to meet with a police officer you can call “101” and make an appointment at your local police station. Appointments are prioritised depending on the nature of the request. An appointment is necessary because stations are not always manned. Our local station is in the Rushcliffe Community Contact Centre at West Bridgford (Rectory Road, NG2 6BN)
Home visits are available if you're vulnerable and can't get to a police station.
The Scheduled Appointments Service frees up police officers' time, enabling them to resolve more incidents more quickly than they could if they travelled to see everyone who is a victim of crime.
Crimestoppers – 0800 555 111
If you wish to report a crime anonymously use this number
It’s very important to report crimes as otherwise rural communities may not be given the required level of resourcing they deserve.
