‘Make Yourself Heard’ campaign
A national campaign to raise awareness of a system to help people alert police when in imminent danger but unable to speak, was recently launched by the Independent Office for Police Conduct as part of National Stalking Awareness Week (8th – 12th April)
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.
The system is well-established in the UK but is only effective if the public know and understand how it works. It could, in extreme situations, potentially save a life.
Please share this information widely.
