Contact Us

There are several ways you can contact your Community Policing Team or make a report to the police.

If your report is not an emergency call 101 or, if your enquiry is an emergency, always dial 999. If you have dialled 101 or 999 by mistake or if you no longer require assistance, please stay on the line and let us know rather than ending the call.

If you wish to report a crime online, you can do so here.

If it is not an emergency and you are not reporting a crime, you can visit or email your Community Policing Team by clicking on the relevant Command Areas above.
