Domestic Abuse Guidance
Domestic Abuse Guidance
If you are danger, need the police, but can’t speak:
- Dial 999
- Listen to the questions from the 999 operator
- Respond by coughing or tapping the handset if you can
- If prompted press 55. This lets the call operator know it’s a genuine emergency and you’ll be put through to the police
