Hampshire Constabulary’s Direct Access Line
The Police have set up a new service called the Direct Access Line for vulnerable callers for non-emergency calls.
The caller can register on line or by post.
the police will then send them a welcome pack with the phone number to use and everything they need to know.
Their details will be stored in police systems on a personal record.
The calls will come in directly to the police using a Direct Dial Number which by-passes all the menu options and then the telephone display screen will show it as a "direct access line" call so that the call taker can deal with the caller in the best way.
