The number – 105 – will be for contacting police about situations like a stolen car or property damage or if people want to give information about crime in their local area.

It is free to call from all landline and mobile numbers and will be answered 24 hours a day.

The 111 emergency number should still be called immediately if a crime is taking place or there’s a threat to life or property, police say. It connects to police, fire, emergency and ambulance services.

“Introducing 105 is part of our drive to modernise the way we deliver services to the public and ensure everyone in New Zealand can access policing services – anywhere, anytime,” Police Commissioner Mike Bush said.

As well as by phone, people can go online to the 105 website to report certain non-emergency situations, and get updates on or add more information to their existing reports.

Currently, lost property, intentional property damage, shoplifting, general theft, and theft from a car can be reported at 105.police.govt.nz.

“We’re encouraging people to report non-emergencies online when and if they can,” Mr Bush said.
