Midlothian South, Tweeddale and Lauderdale MSP Christine Grahame is urging her constituents to use the 101 service when calling the police in a non-emergency.

She said: “In a non-emergency situation constituents should dial 101 to report their concerns. 
“These could be minor traffic accidents, if property has been vandalised, if you suspect drug dealing or you’ve seen a missing person.

“The 101 service also replaces all local police station numbers which can be used to contact the police anywhere in the country. The number is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.” Ms Grahame explained that the 101 number would allow police to deal with 999 calls quicker.
