    call the police

    If you have an ongoing problem that is not resolved by calling the police at the
    time of each incident, you may wish to call the police station and ask for ...
    www.tenantunion.uiuc.edu

    Could you please tell me what's the difference between 'call the police' and 'call the police station'?

    Thank you very much.

    Re: call the police

    To call the police we usually dial 999 in England and we get an emergency centre who pass on the message to a local unit. If we call the "police station", this means we call our local Police office directly - not through the emergency services number.
