Hertfordshire Constabulary has a number for all non-emergency calls: -


Telephone 101

Telephone 01707 354000


Write it down, programme it into your mobile phone, keep it handy.


When you call, you will hear a short crime prevention message before being put through.


Use the non-emergency number:


  • to report an incident or a crime that has happened (not an incident or crime in progress as this should be a Telephone 999 call)
  • to speak to a police officer or member of police staff
  • for a general police enquiry, advice and information

You can still use direct line numbers to speak to someone whose number you know.


In an emergency always dial Telephone 999


An emergency is when:


  • Someone is injured, being threatened or is in danger.
  • There is a risk of injury to someone or a risk of serious damage to property.
  • A crime is in progress or you suspect a crime is in progress.
  • There is a serious incident which needs immediate police attendance.
