A Crime

In an Emergency - call 999

Always dial 999 when:

  • a crime is in progress
  • a life is in danger or there is a risk of injury
  • an offender is still at the scene or has just left

Non-emergencies - dial 101

To report  a crime or incident that is not an emergency or to make a general enquiry if you do not have a contact person or extension number call 101.

Calls to the 101 non–emergency number, from both landlines and mobiles, cost 15 pence per call no matter what time of day you call, or how long you are on the phone.

If you are calling from outside Dorset, please dial 01202 22 22 22
