Contacting the Police
You can ring South Yorkshire Police on 999 if a crime is in progress, or the non-emergency number 101 to report any information. Alternately, you can ring ‘Crimestoppers’ anonymously 24 hours a day on: 0800 555 111. You can also report any incidents on line to South Yorkshire Police on: www.reportingcrime.uk as, in some cases, getting through on 101 can take a significant time, whereas reporting it on line can be quicker.
