Emergency is still 999.
There is a new '101' non-emergency number to report crime and other concerns that do not require an emergency police response. The local number, 0300 111 222 will remain available while 101 becomes established and for those calling from outside England and Wales, as well as for callers outside Northamptonshire where 101 is not yet live.
