Getting help with domestic abuse

By May 1, 2020 No Comments

During this COVID-19 pandemic, limited contact with the outside world may make you or someone you know feel unsafe but Kent and Sussex Police specialist teams are still available to help 24/7, in the same way as before.

If you are are concerned about the welfare of a neighbour, you can let us know, but if there is an immediate threat for someone’s welfare or safety call 999.

Kent / Sussex Police will respond to your call and can arrest anyone committing offences against you.

In an emergency dial 999 or 101 for non-emergencies. If you live in Kent, you can also speak to someone online at
