Police – Information for the Haydon Wick Community

There are lots of ways you can get in touch with your local police. You can call the dedicated 101 number, make contact via https://www.wiltshire.police.uk/ speak to an officer, call in to your local station and when appropriate, dial 999.

The switchboard  is often the first point of contact  for people either  calling 999 in an emergency or for those  calling 101 to report  non-urgent  crime or for advice and information.

The switchboard  helps the Police to prioritise calls they receive, but also need the public’s help to keep the 101 service running effectively.

When to call 101 and 999:

If a crime is occurring now, or has just happened, call 999.  If it isn’t urgent or you are asking for an update or information then call 101.

The Police understand that  it can be very frustrating to be in a call queue and kept waiting. So please help them. When contacting  police, please think before you call and ask yourself- is my call really important and necessary?  Have you checked the website – you may find you get the information  you need more quickly that  way.
