Why has Police introduced a non-emergency number?

NZ Police is modernising the way it delivers services to the public so that everyone in New Zealand can access policing services – anywhere, anytime. To do this we need to deliver the right service to the public in the right way, enabled by modern technologies. We’ve introduced 105 (along with online reporting) as an easy-to-remember number for reporting non-emergencies to Police. 111 remains the number to call to report an emergency to Police, Fire and Emergency, or ambulance services. The 105 non-emergency number is for reporting situations to Police that don’t require immediate Policeattendance.
