3. Greater Manchester Police
You should always call 999 when it is an emergency, such as when a crime is in progress, someone suspected of a crime is nearby, when there is danger to life or when violence is being used or threatened.
101 - The police non-emergency number
101 is the number to call when you want to contact your local police in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland - when it's less urgent than a 999 call.
You should call 101 to report crime and other concerns that do not require an emergency response. For example, if:
- your car has been stolen
- your property has been damaged
- you suspect drug use or dealing in your neighbourhood
- report a minor traffic collision
- give the police information about crime in your area
- speak to the police about a general enquiry
