Domestic violence is never your fault.
You’re not alone in the UK.
A silent 999 call alone will not automatically bring help.
Pressing 55 will not bring emergency services to your door and does not allow the police to track your location
– it informs us you have an emergency.
Please listen in and engage with the police call handlers
-the will try in a number of ways to find out what’s happening and where you are even if you can’t speak.
Police response is guaranteed if we can identify who and/or where the caller is. Police call handlers can request subscriber checks and can carry out background checks.
If you can say only one thing, please say your location.
STOP DOMESTIC ABUSE!
Domestic Violence is a pattern of Coercive tactics that can
include physical, psychological, sexual, economic, and emotional
abuse, perpetrated by one person against intimate partners,
with the goal of establishing and maintaining power and control.
Domestic Violence occurs in all kinds of intimate relationships,
including married couples, people who are dating, couples who
live together, people with children in common, same-sex
partners, people who were formerly in a relationship with the
person abusing them, and teen dating relationships.
Abusive behaviors are not symptoms that someone is angry or
out of control. An abuser makes a choice to exert power and
control over his or her partner. Abusive behaviors include
physical, emotional, sexual, social, and financial abuse.
