New phone number for Herts police

editorial image

POLICE: A new non-emergency number is being launched to reach police on in Herts.

You can now dial 101 rather than 0845 33 00 222 to reach them. The two numbers will run in tandem at first, until the 0845 is removed in about a year’s time.

It’s part of a UK-wide initiative to make it cheaper and easier to call police.

Herts police have also released six hoax calls they received, including one where a man asks for a lift home after missing his stop on the train.
