101 is the national non-emergency number to contact Police in your area. Residents in the Kent policing area should call 101 to contact their local officer, make an enquiry and to report non-urgent crimes.
Examples when to use 101 are:
Each call will never cost more than 15p. Callers will be put through to Force Control Room in Kent and not a national call centre.
Community Policing Volunteers
Kent Police are looking for volunteers to play a new role in community policing. Could this be you? If so, please follow the link below:
Kent’s community wardens are out and about between 7.30am and 10pm every day in 128 Kent communities including ours who covers Higham, Chalk, Cobham and Sole Street.
His name is Paul Hassell and you may have met him at the monthly drop-in sessions held at Higham library or you may have seen him out and about in the village. He is a very friendly and approachable warden (as they all are) and is more than happy to take your calls relating to all manner of issues relating to low-level crime in our village.
As a Community Warden, Paul
The Community Warden drop-in surgery is held on the last Thursday of the month between 2.30pm and 4pm in Higham Library. Why not meet him at the next drop-in surgery on 28th November 2019?
If you wish to make a report of a low-level crime that you have witnessed or perhaps you have observed suspicious activity in Higham, you can contact Paul directly:

It is now possible to access Higham Library when it’s not staffed! Wow!
Outside the usual staffed ‘opening’ hours, using a Library Extra registered Kent Library Card and your personal PIN, you can enter Higham Library from 7am until 9pm, Monday to Saturday.
This is ideal for customers who find it difficult to get to the library during its opening hours, to pick up a reservation or return a book for example, but it also provides an opportunity for quiet study and email catch-up, using the public computers for an hour or the free WiFi.
If you are interested in registering for Library Extra at Higham, anybody (with proof of address and DOB and with a current library card) can sign up for this amazing service! You just need to sign a short form accepting the Terms & Conditions of the service and receive a short induction from the helpful library staff.
You do have to pop in during the staffed hours to do this though!
Library hours are as follows:
Home Library Service (HLS) – If you are someone (or you know of someone) who would like to borrow a book (standard or large print) or audio disc (spoken word) but you’re unable to get to the library, we have a volunteer who can visit you fortnightly with books for your enjoyment. There is no charge for this service and you have an extended loan period.
Chess – Why not pop in with a friend to play a game of chess, using our lovely, donated chess set. If you fancy setting up a Chess Club, even better!
Coming Soon! — Higham Village History Group now has its archive materials stored at the library and a volunteer will be available once a month to help customers with their local history enquiries. Dates/times to be confirmed. Watch this space!
