Report a crime that's not an emergency

Use 105 to report crimes to Police that are not urgent and do not need Emergency Services.

  • no one’s injured or in danger
  • there’s no serious risk to people or property
  • the crime is not still happening.

If you cannot get through to 105 on your landline or mobile, you can report online at 105.police.govt.nz or call 0800 105 105.

  • a stolen car or bike
  • a lost wallet or phone
  • suspected shoplifting
