Which number should I use?

114 is the nationwide service number for the police. You can call 114 if you:

  • Wish to report a crime
  • Have information regarding a crime committed.
  • Need information or guidance about permissions issued by the police.

You also have the option of contacting your local police directly either by mail, phone or in person.

112 is a nationwide number and should be used in case of an accident, fire or serious crime.

Don’t hesitate to call if lives, property or the environment is in danger.

Be ready to answer the questions that the emergency call center will ask:

  • What has happened, when and where?
  • Which phone number are you calling from?
  • How many people are injured?

You should not call 112 if it isn’t acute, as you risk blocking the lines for an emergency call.
