What is 101?

101 is now the number to call when
you want to get through to your local police when it's less urgent than 999.

It is available 24 hours a day, 7
days a week. Calls to 101 from land lines and mobile networks cost 15 pence per
call, no matter what time of day you call or how long you are on the phone.
