- use a text phone to call the Typetalk emergency line on 18000
- send an emergency text message, find out how to register your mobile phone with the system
If it's not an emergency or a general enquiry
If you don't need urgent assistance, or have a general enquiry, you should dial 101 (our non-emergency number).
Calls to 101 cost 15 pence per call from landlines and mobiles - no matter how long you're on the phone.
If you are deaf, hard of hearing or have a speech impediment you can contact the police using a text phone through Typetalk for non-emergency situations on 18001 101.
