Alternative methods of reporting of non-urgent matters online

Devon and Cornwall Police are reminding the public that there are alternative contact methods to contact

police, rather than calling 101.

People can now complete an online non-urgent crime report or use the “contact an officer” facility,

which will be dealt with in the same way as a call to 101, but can often be quicker and more convenient for

busy people.

For other matters, an email to is a convenient alternative option to calling 101.

We know some people want to speak to a person or don't have access to the Internet. We want to

encourage more people to contact us using these alternative contact methods, so we can manage our

demand more efficiently and provide an even better 101 telephone service to those people who really do

need to call us.

Contact us

The non-emergency telephone number is 101.

999 still applies in emergencies, but to call about any other issues or for any enquiries please use 101.

If you would like to contact your local PCSO directly please call 101 and ask for PCSO 30538 Emma

TOMKIES or alternatively email

I also now have a mobile phone number that you can use to contact me when I am on duty. This is not to

report emergencies, but can be used to contact me directly – 0771 857 5465.
