Calls to 101 cannot be included in goodybags for the reasons already explained. The call price is set by agreement of the Home Office.

 

This, however, does not stop you using your goodybag to contact the police.

 

Every police force is required to advertise an 01, 02, 03 or 080 number alongside 101.

 

Every police force has complied. There is a complete list in the 'Calling 101' article listed in the 'Tips + Guides' link in the signature below.

It doesn't matter how many times we post the same information.

 

When someobody has decided that they can't even be bothered to read the responses in a thread that's less than a page long you're just wasting your time.

I tend to agee with you @exmember-2018-4735772 it should be included in the goodybag minutes, at least I think so.

i would like to say that its not all about the 15p, its about being able to call the police on the spur of the moment, i know theres the emergency 999 number but sometimes its not an emergency, but you just wanted to call them there and then, so if you have no credit then you cant....this is when this becomes slightly  annoying...maybe we could have the choice to buy a bolt on £1 copperbag.....ha.

Agreed @exmember-2018-4735772 it should in my opinion, be in the goodybag.
