Recognise it and report it - protecting children and adults from abuse.

If you think someone is being abused or you think their safety is at risk, then it is important to report your concerns.

You must never assume that somebody else will recognise and report what you have seen or heard.

In the event of a crime

Where a crime has been committed or if you're worried about someone's immediate safety, contact the Police by dialling 999.
