Call me on the line, call me, call me any anytime…

A very quick post this to publicise the fact that as of today you can now get in contact with West Midlands Police by dialing 101 rather than going through the arduous process of dialing 0, then 3, then looking for the 4 before hitting the 5, then hitting 1 twice, then 3, then 5 and then, if all that wasn’t enough, pressing 0 three times in a row.

The number can be used whenever you need to get in contact with us about matters that do not require an urgent response. Calls cost a flat rate of 15p, no matter how long you speak for or if you’re phoning from a land line or a mobile.

Contrary to what our official press release says, we haven’t ‘launched a new number’ as I’m fairly certain 101 had been sandwiched between 100 and 102 for a few centuries now.

Even so, it’s hoped the ‘new’ number will be easier to remember than the old one (which will continue to operate) and will help take pressure off the 999 system which should solely be used in emergencies.
