Safeguarding Information and Guidance regarding Domestic Violence from Merseyside Violence Reduction Partnership:
Domestic Abuse during the lockdown is a very real concern, and family members will be at an increased risk. We need to ensure that we are proactive in asking appropriate and safe questions while families are in lockdown.
Police guidance on the ‘999 silent solution’ call:
The 999 call system allows all 999 callers to access support if they are unable to speak during the call. It is important that either a noise is made or that 55 is pressed. For example, if you can only make noise, such as tapping the handset, coughing, crying or even talking to the offender, then these actions will alert the attention of the BT operator.
If you are supporting someone who is suffering with domestic abuse, speaking out is not always an option when someone is in real danger, so please encourage use of the 999 silent call. The Police Force and specially trained officers are still there for people during the lockdown. The below list details services which are also available:
In an emergency always, ring 999. Using a silent 999 call followed by 55 (or tapping/coughing into the phone) will enable police to respond.
