Using the automated switchboard

A number of callers to the 101 number are pressing option 2 without being sure which department it is they want to speak to. Please see the list of departments which you can ask to be put through to via the automated switchboard. You can also ask for individual names or collar numbers.

If asking for a collar number, say "zero" for 0. Collar numbers at North Yorkshire Police are sometimes written as four-digit numbers. However, please do NOT speak any preceding zeroes (say "123" not "0123").

Example 1: If you want to report lost property, say "Lost Property". You will be asked for the name of your local police station. Say "York Police Station". You will then be put straight through. If you are not sure which is your local police station, say "Options". You will then hear a list of all available stations.

Example 2: If you want to speak PC John Doe, with collar number 0120, say either "John Doe" or "one two zero".
