Ofcom Website | Ofcom agrees to Home Office request for 101 as single non-emergency number

Ofcom have agreed to allocate 101 as a non-emergency number as requested by the Home Office.

This will be used to report criminal or anti-social behaviour in situations not considered an emergency.

Ofcom has not set a tarrif, but the Home Office is trying to secure a rate of 10p per call from all networks, subject to ongoing talks with the networks to ensure they can implement the tarrif.
