Always call 999 if:
someone is threatened or in danger.
a crime is happening
someone suspected of a crime is nearby
someone is injured
Use 101 when you don't need an emergency response.
if youve had a minor traffic accident
if your property has been vandalised
if your car has been stolen
if you suspect drug dealing
if youve witnessed a crime
if youve seen a missing person
if you need crime prevention advice
if you want to speak to a local police officer
Just this week we heard from a coordinator in Pitlochry about one of the NW members there who had seen a crime in progress and called 999. This resulted in a very quick apprehension of the suspects, which the local police believe would not have happened if not for the call. Where there is genuine need for a 999 call, the Police encourage you to use it.
Dial 101 any time it isn't 999.
