Police Scotland’s main contact number has changed.  The new number is 101.

In an emergency, where someone is in immediate danger, call 999.

The Strathclyde Police Force area is divided into Divisions. The police investigations into such crimes, will be handled with sensitivity and diligence by dedicated, well-trained individuals who specialise in such areas.  The new Units address the need for victims of emotive and sensitive crimes such as sexual assault, domestic abuse and child abuse. New Family Protection Units have been set up in each police division.

Family Protection Units

Calling 101 will transfer you through to a service advisor who could either forward the call on the relevant department or create an incident for officer attendance where necessary.

This number is answered 24 hours a day – 7 days a week.
