From the BBC article we can understand that a new non emergency number has been launched to replace the existing 0300 number. Its going to be much easier to remember 101 to dial when it is an enquiry about crimes that have already happened, seek advice of any type. I am not certain whether this number works for us yet but I suppose we’ll get a leaflet through the door when it does.
So in case of an immediate emergency dial 999 and in case of a non urgent police call please call 101 when it is announced that it is going to start. I suppose the existing SNT numbers are still valid and active. Though it is rumoured that the SNT’s are not certain either. We’ll see.
