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.

REMEMBER  – ONLY dial 999 in an emergency when life is in danger or a crime is in progress.

Examples when to use 101 are:

  • if your car has been stolen,
  • if property has been damaged,
  • if you suspect drug use or dealing,
  • to report a minor traffic collision,
  • to give information about a crime or criminals in your local area.

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.
