We have a very strong and positive relationship with our Community Police team. The local PCSOs will often give talks in assemblies about online safety, social responsibility, being street wise etc. 101 is the number to call when you want to contact your local police – when it’s less urgent than a 999 call. You should call 101 to report crime and other concerns that do not require an emergency response.
For example, if:
- Your car has been stolen
- Your property has been damaged
- You suspect drug use or dealing in your neighbourhood
- Give the police information about crime in your area
- Speak to the police about a general enquiry
You should always call 999 when it is an emergency, such as when a crime is in progress, someone suspected of a crime is nearby, when there is danger to life or when violence is being used or threatened.
What about nuisance or environmental issues?
You should continue to contact Oxfordshire County Council about general issues in your area like:
- Dog fouling
- Abandoned vehicles
- Dumping and fly tipping
- Vandalism of public property
