Launch of New Police Non-Emergency Number
A new 101 non-emergency number will be launched across Scotland on Thursday 21 February 2013, and will replace the vast range of existing police force non-emergency numbers, including the Grampian Police 0845 600 5 700 number, which will be gradually phased out.
The introduction of the 101 non-emergency number will give the people of Scotland a new way to contact the police, seek advice, speak to a local officer or to report a crime that does not need an emergency response, for example:
The 101 non-emergency number is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It costs a flat rate of 15p per call and will connect the public to a police service centre in their local area. The number has already been launched successfully in England and Wales and is widely used.
The key reasons for introducing the 101 non-emergency number in Scotland are to:
The public should continue to call 999 in an emergency - when a crime is in progress, when someone suspected of a crime is nearby, when a life is in danger or when violence is being used or threatened.
The Community Council meets in Catterline School at 7.30 pm on the last Tuesday of the month, except for the months of July, August and December. The AGM is held after the ordinary meeting in March.
The next public meeting of the Community Council will be on Tuesday, 28 January 2014.
