Who Do I Contact
Bude Police Station
The contact telephone numbers for Bude police is 01288 357502 – the neighbourhood answer machine. This is not manned and is for you to leave a non urgent message for the neighbourhood team.
101 non-emergency number
This is the main number for calls to the police to report a crime or a non urgent incident.
For instance if you arrive home and find some damage or an attempt has been made to gain entry to your home, and you haven’t seen anyone. Getting the police there now will not make any difference to something that has probably happened quite a while ago. You call 101 to report it.
Calls to 101 are answered by police call handlers in the control room of the local police force. This ensures that staff with local knowledge can answer and deal with the calls and respond appropriately.
You will not be put through to a large national call centre.
This is the emergency number for all urgent calls whereby it is necessary to have a police officer there NOW!
Many people are worried about calling 999 for the police. In the event of fire or medical emergency the decision appears simple. This number should be used where an officer is needed NOW.
If you get home and find your door open and can hear noises inside then call 999. Likewise if there is an offender still at the scene of a crime, or you can see them running off, call 999. Getting the police there quickly could stop a situation getting worse and could result in an arrest.
Your Neighbourhood Policing team will be highly visible in your area. They will provide suitable means by which the community can contact them and identify their priorities for action. They will be responsive to those community priorities. They will provide information to the community on what work is being done to address the priorities and the results of this work. Your Neighbourhood Team will work with the community and partner agencies to deal with the long term, often relatively low profile, issues that have an effect on peoples quality of life.
