Feel safe to be at home on your own

Support is only a phone call away

If you are in immediate danger call 999. If you need the Police but can’t talk, dial 999 from a mobile, then 55 when prompted and don’t hang up. The silent solution system enables a 999 mobile caller who is too scared to make a noise, or speak, to press 55 when prompted – to inform police they are in a genuine emergency.
