Members of the public in Dorset must now ring 101 to contact Dorset Police for non-urgent enquiries, to report crime, to contact their local Safer Neighbourhood Team, to provide the police with information about crimes that have been committed or to make a general enquiry.

This number replaces the previous non-emergency police number 01305 222 222. People should always dial 999 in an emergency – when life is in danger or a crime is in progress. Calls to the 101 non-emergency number – from both landlines and mobile phones – cost 15 pence per call no matter what time of day you call, or how long you are on the phone.
