*** Reporting Incidents via the Police Scotland 101 System ***


Residents concerned about local incidents, minor crime or disorder are encouraged to report via the non-emergency number 101. This can be done anonymously. It is important that incidents are reported and logged as this creates a record and evidence of an ongoing issue which may require additional resources. 

Use the non-emergency number and call 101 for situations that do not require an immediate police response.

This will help keep 999 available when there is an emergency, for example, if a crime is taking place, or someone is in immediate danger – for these types of incidents, always call 999.
