Silent 999 calls

Silent 999 calls are not automatically transferred to the police, as they may have been dialled accidentally. However there is a procedure which the police request the emergency operator to follow for silent 999 calls that means that if you have made an emergency call but cannot speak (for example because you believe you will be in danger if you are heard), please dial 55 when asked to do so press 55 on your keypad if you want the police and stay on the line.

Inappropriate 999 calls

#999Calls   Every week we receive many calls to 999 which are not genuine emergencies.  Only call 999 when life is threatened, people are injured, offenders are nearby or immediate action is required. As part of the Inappropriate 999 calls campaign, we have created a series of funny videos to accompany real recordings of inappropriate calls to the emergency 999 number.
