Silent 999 calls

If you're in danger but you can't talk on the phone, you should still call 999, then follow these instructions depending on whether you're calling from a mobile or a landline.

Non-emergency 101

Call 101 for non-emergency enquiries.

If you're deaf or hard of hearing, use our textphone service on 18001 101.

To access video calling for the deaf, a British Sign language (BSL) user can connect to a BSL interpreter via video calling system SignVideo.

The interpreter will relay what you say to the police and vice versa.

This service is to report non-urgent incidents or crimes, or to ask the police for advice and information. It's not for emergencies.

  2. connect to a SignVideo interpreter and tell them you are calling the police 101 number
  3. the SignVideo interpreter may ask if you want to prepare anything before starting the call
  4. you'll then be connected to a 101 adviser via the interpreter
