The PSNI has announced that as of today, Monday 24 March 2014, the telephone number for calling the Police Service of Northern Ireland in a non-emergency situation will be 101.

The new number will provide members of the public with improved access to police non-emergency services.

Any member of the public wanting to speak to police about a non-emergency matter should now dial 101.

This new number replaces the 0845 600 8000 number that has been in use for several years.
