Emergency Services

In the event of an Emergency, you should always dial 999.  Tell the Operator which service you require (Police, Fire or Ambulance).


If immediate police presence is required then always dial 999.

In line nationally Suffolk Constabulary have moved over to a new Non Emergency number which is simply 101 (24 hours/day) - from October 2011.

101 will become a national number allowing callers to be connected to the nearest Police Force so if you for instance in Devon and need to contact Police for a non emergency then you do not need to find the local number (until now each force had a different number).

Each call costs 15 pence regardless of time of day or length of call.

Woodbridge Police Station is located at Grundisburgh Road, Woodbridge  IP12 4HG Telephone: 101
