Get in touch with your local police.

Following on from the Annual Parish Meeting, wherein PC Rob Sippitt explained that unless your call is urgent, and you need immediate assistance - in which case you should dial 999 - then it is easier to contact the Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) by email on: sudbury.snt@suffolk.pnn.police.uk.
This advice was offered as a faster method than the 101 number.
