Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI)
The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) aims to make Northern Ireland safer for everyone through professional, progressive policing.
Work of the police
The PSNI achieves its aims through policing with the community. This proactive, community-driven approach sees the police and local community working together to identify and solve problems.
The work of the PSNI is overseen through a system of accountability structures, including the Police Ombudsman for Northern Ireland and the Northern Ireland Policing Board.
You can find out more about the PSNI on its website.
In an emergency dial 999 or 18000 from a text phone. (An emergency is where serious injury has been caused or a crime is in progress and the suspects are at or near the scene.)
Non emergency calls and general enquiries should be directed to 0845 600 8000.
