CALLING 999

A new campaign launched by the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) wants to inform people of the Silent Solution system, which could ultimately be lifesaving.

The Silent Solution system enables a person making a 999 call from a mobile, who is too scared to make a noise, to press 55 when prompted by an automated system. If they press 55, it will inform police they are in a genuine emergency, and they can then attend the scene.
