New 101 Police Service Number
by Parish Council on Monday 24 October 2011

Derbyshire Police are introducing a new 101 number for non-emergency calls.

People will be able to contact Derbyshire police by dialling the new number from Monday.

It is part of a national campaign to report crime and disorder across England and all forces in England are aiming to use the number by the end of 2011.

A Derbyshire police spokesman said it was hoped the 101 number would reduce inappropriate 999 calls.

The total cost of a call is 15p from landlines and mobile phones.

The number can be used to report a stolen car, a minor traffic collision or suspected drug dealing, police said.

Derbyshire police answered 462,423 calls, including 391,903 non-emergency calls between April 1 and September 30 in 2011.
