Emergencies


In an emergency: dial 999

  • An emergency is when a crime is being committed or has just been witnessed, there is a risk of injury, or a risk of serious damage to property.


Every hoax or non-emergency call to 999 causes a delay in answering and dealing with genuine emergencies. 

999 is a fast response line for members of the public who urgently need police assistance. 

Misuse of this service can seriously put lives at risk and we therefore urge the public to consider this before ringing the service with non-urgent matters.
