If you ring police you expect to be able to get hold of them - but this was not the case for a few people.
Nottinghamshire Police experienced "telephone issues" yesterday.
The force has said the issues, which only affected the non-emergency 101 service and not the 999 service, have now been resolved.
A police spokesman said: "Earlier telephony issues affecting Nottinghamshire Police have now been resolved.
"Calls to the 999 service were answered as normal but the non-emergency 101 service was affected.
"However normal service has now been resumed."
