Reporting to police

We do ask that all reports are made directly via the 101 number so the appropriate department is made aware of the incident and to ensure that it is allocated to the appropriate officers.

Please do not report directly to the local PCSO or PC via email or mobile phone. This can lead to a delay in the report being disseminated to other officers/departments if the officer is not on duty.
