Silent Solution
If you tel: 999 from a mobile but it is not safe for you to speak, Silent Solution is a system the police use to assess and respond to your call. Tel: 999 and if its not safe to respond to the BT operator when they ask what service you want, stay connected. If the operator hears any suspicious noise you'll be transferred to the police.

If nothing is heard you may be asked to press 55 - this will connect you to a police call handler. Listen carefully to their questions and instructions so that they can assess your situation and arrange for assistance. This system means that the police can respond to genuine emergencies when people are in danger and accidental or hoax 999 calls do not distract them.

Accidental 999 calls from a landline are less likely so if you tel: 999 from a landline but are unable to speak you will be connected without being asked to enter 55.
