Offering a vital lifeline to those under Police protection

There are some truly frightening statistics about domestic abuse in the UK. For instance, one in four women will experience domestic violence in their lifetime.

Each and every minute, one case of domestic abuse is reported to the police and perhaps most shocking of all, on average, two women a week are killed by a current or former partner.

With around three million women experiencing violence in Britain each year, it’s a significant national problem. Domestic abuse is devastating to individuals and their families and a constant drain on public resources.

Peoplesafe benefits the police

Protecting vulnerable individuals who are victims of domestic violence or witness protection programmes requires instant and regular use of resources – and can be very expensive. However, for a victim in trouble, knowing that the police will respond immediately to their call for help, wherever they are, is essential.

We immediately assess all alarm activations and from listening in to the call, we are able to tell if we believe it’s a false alarm – saving you time and resources.

What’s more, each and every alarm is recorded and can be used for evidential purposes. Our devices are also easily transferable between users enabling them to be reused at no extra cost.
