NON-EMERGENCY NUMBERThe new police non-emergency number: 101. Here is a reminder that West Yorkshire Police have launched a new non-emergency number '101' to replace the 0845 6060606 number – and our new system has now been adopted across the country. 101 calls cost a flat rate of 15p, even from a mobile phone, at any time of the day and for any length of time. Deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired people can use text phone 18001 101. 101 is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The 999 number is for real emergencies, where there is a danger to life, or a crime is in progress. Please don’t call 999 unless it is an emergency, as you might be putting others at risk – use 101.
