Police Chief - “Do not suffer in silence.”

IF you are suffering from any form of domestic violence - you do not have to suffer alone.

Chief Inspector Dick Coates, the Wealden District Police Commander, wants anyone who is in trouble to contact specially trained police officers.

Chief Insp Coates said: “Do not suffer in silence. We are here to help.

“We have trained officers waiting for your call.”

Anyone suffering abuse should contact the police via 999 in an emergency or the 101 number at any other time.
