101 non-emergency number
Our 101 call service should be used if you need to contact the police but your situation does not require immediate attention. All calls are charged at 15p.
To contact North Yorkshire Police from outside the force area, call 01904 618691 or 01609 768291. Both numbers will reach our automated switchboard from where you can select your required option.
If you are calling us from outside the UK, call +44 1904 618691.
When you dial 101, you can select option 2 and ask the automated switchboard for a specific department or officer.
If asking for an officer’s collar number, say “zero” for 0. Collar numbers at North Yorkshire Police are sometimes written as four-digit numbers. However, please do NOT speak any preceding zeroes (say “123” not “0123”).
Example 1: If you want to report lost property, say “Lost Property”. You will be asked for the name of your local police station. Say “York Police Station”. You will then be put straight through. If you are not sure which is your local police station, say “Options”. You will then hear a list of all available stations.
Example 2: If you want to speak PC John Doe, with collar number 0120, say either “John Doe” or “one two zero”.
Textphone 18001 101 can be used to contact an officer, police station, or to report an incident that does not require immediate attention or for general enquiries. This service is provided by the RNID Text Relay service and is suitable for people who have a hearing or speech impairment.
