As of yesterday, 1 April, the new non-emergency number for the police, 101, replaces the old 0345 number. For the full story see the recent 'ecops' mailing from the police (sign up here to join the mailing list).

Switchover to 101

FROM Sunday (April 1), Cambridgeshire police can only be contacted on 101 for all non-emergency calls.

The old 0345 number will be switched off and a recorded message will tell people to call 101.

The old number has remained in use alongside 101 for the past year to allow people time to get used to the new number.

People should continue to call 999 when an immediate response is needed, for example if a crime is happening, someone suspected of a crime is nearby, or someone is in danger.
