Police

In an emergency, dial 999. Ask for police, fire or ambulance.

Only call 999 if...

• A crime is being committed now
• The offender is still there or nearby
• People are injured or in danger.

For less urgent business contact the Hamsey, Barcombe and Newick Local Team.

The Sussex Police website has station opening times, plus other useful information on a wide range of topics.
