How Much Does It Cost To Call 101, the New Local Police Contact Number?

leave a comment »

Having asked the question at our local Mercian P.A.C.T. meeting in Tamworth (first Tuesday of each month at 7:00PM at the Leyfields Community Centre, Masefield Drive) the consensus seemed to be it would be the cost of a local call.

As nobody actually knew, I decided to do a bit of research and can tell you that the government website at http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/CrimeJusticeAndTheLaw/Reportingcrimeandantisocialbehaviour/DG_185338 says:

“Calls to 101 (from both landlines and mobiles) cost 15 pence per call no matter what time of day you call, or how long you are on the phone.”

So there is the answer. 15p. Or 3 bob, if you like!
