NZ Police Non Emergency Number


Kia ora


General information for your school community. 

NZ Police recently launched a new non emergency number, 105. We’ve done this to make it easier to get hold of us in the event of non-urgent situations or ‘Things which have Already Happened’, which don’t require Police assistance immediately.

You can call us on 105 for all non emergencies, or you can go online at to report things like:

  •  Lost property
  •  Theft for a public place or car
  •  Intentional property damage
  •  Or to get an update or add info to a previous report

In the event of an emergency, always call 111 – Things that are Happening Now. 


Over the next year our Police School Co-ordinators will be bringing educational collateral supporting the rollout of 105.  If you would like this collateral prior to their visit please go to the resources page at

Private Phone Systems (PABX)

Though Police has worked with NZ Telcos to enable the 105 number to dial out nationally we realise that many schools have their own private phone systems and for some the 105 number may not dial out. Please check that you can dial out 105 and if you can’t, please contact your phone service provider to update your dial plan to allow the 105 number to dial out.
