Contacting Lancashire Police if you are outside Lancashire — The 101 service always tries to put you through to the police force in the area where you are calling from. If you are outside Lancashire, you can still call us using 101. Simply call 101, listen to the message then select the option to 'choose another police force'. If Lancashire Police is not on the automated list, please choose the option to speak to an operator. Ask the operator for Lancashire Police.
Contacting Lancashire Police if you can't access 101 — Some business switchboards in England block 101. It is also not available in Scotland, and may not be in Northern Ireland. Please contact us by calling 0845 1253545 or 01772 614444. Calling either of these numbers from some pre-pay mobile phones can be expensive so we would recommend you use 101 if possible because it never cost more than 15p, no matter how long your call lasts.
