    Q784: Does 101 replace 999?

    No. 101 is the number to use to contact the police in situations that do not need an immediate response. 999 is still the number to call when an immediate response is needed - when a crime is in progress, when someone suspected of a crime is nearby, when a life is in danger or when violence is being used or threatened.
