Derbyshire police have launched a new telephone number which will make it easier for people get in touch with the force about issues that do not need an emergency response.
Dialling 101 will replace the former 0345 123 3333 non-emergency number and reduce the number of inappropriate 999 calls.
You should use 101 to report crime and other concerns that do not require an emergency response, such as thefts, damage, minor traffic accidents or to talk about crime in your area. Calls from landlines and mobile networks cost 15 pence per call.
The 0345 123 3333 number will remain as a way for people to contact Derbyshire Constabulary from overseas. Deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired callers can access the service via textphone on 18001 101.
