At Surrey Choices, we are passionate about giving our customers the opportunity to voice their opinions, views and expectations about the services they receive, ensuring that the nature of their disability is not a barrier to expressing themselves. The Involvement Board run by Dexter James, is a relaxed meeting that allows customers the chance to have their ideas become reality.
During the November meeting, we invited local police officer Herman, from the Surrey Police Diversity Unit, to take part in an open discussion about when it is the right time to call the police, phone scams and keeping safe in our community.
Herman shared lots of information with the customers and staff at the meeting after which many questions were asked and he answered them all.
Information was shared about the non emergency number for the Police service. You should call 101 to report crime and other concerns that do not require an emergency response. For example, if:
- Your car has been stolen
- Your property has been damaged
- You suspect drug use or dealing in your neighbourhood
- Give the police information about crime in your area
- Speak to the police about a general enquiry
You should always call 999 when it is an emergency, such as when a crime is in progress, someone suspected of a crime is nearby, when there is danger to life or when violence is being used or threatened.
Thanks again to Surrey Police. We look forward to inviting your helpful staff to more of our services!
