The 101 service is used for non-emergency calls but this morning the force said there were issues with their phone lines which meant those calling in were having problems.
"Please be advised there is a fault with our 101 phone lines at the moment which is causing some calls to drop out," read a statement on the force's Twitter page.
"Please try and use online contact methods while this fault is fixed."
