Dial or text ‘999’ in an emergency Dial ‘101’ for non-urgent information
Dial or text ‘999’ in an emergency, i.e. if a crime is being committed.
Dial ‘101’ for non-urgent information or to report a possible crime which may have been committed. You will be connected to the Norfolk Constabulary who will discuss general matters or put you through to your local station if you wish. I have found them very helpful.
By dialling ‘101’ you can also be connected to the Safer Neighbourhood Team at Dereham (or you can visit their website at http://www.citylocal.co.uk/Breckland/news-in-Breckland/dereham-safer-neighbourhood-team-54400/
They appear to be efficient, helpful and informative with a quick reaction to any problems you may have.
Inspector Amie Abbs is in charge of the Dereham SNT and she has a team with members responsible for certain areas. You can find details on the website where Inspector Abbs is quoted as saying “Welcome to the Dereham Safer Neighbourhood Team... The town of Dereham and surrounding villages is a beautiful, friendly and safe area and your local policing team is working to keep it that way.
In addition to the Beat Managers and PCSOs, every Safer Neighbourhood has five teams of Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) Patrol officers who will respond to your calls for service 24 hours a day, investigate the crimes in your area and work with the Beat Managers and PCSOs to deliver your local priorities.
“We want you to feel confident that the Safer Neighbourhood Team, which includes police and partner agencies, will work together to help resolve problems you tell us are affecting you or your community.
“Work with us to keep the neighbourhood safe by telling us your concerns. Speak to your local officers at our public briefings and meetings or contact us by phone, email or online. We are your Safer Neighbourhood Team and we are here to help.”
