Everybody deserves to be safe in their own home and neighbourhood. However, many vulnerable and elderly people, especially those who live by themselves, may need a friendly visit from time to time just to check how they are doing.
My Own Cop offers Safe and Well Checks, during which our fully trained Security Officers will visit an individual to ensure they are okay and check everything is in order. This allows you to put your mind at ease as well as providing the receiver of the visit with reassurance that there is a positive presence in their neighbourhood watching out for their safety.
If you are concerned that somebody may be at risk of harm, a safe and wellbeing check is the quickest way to establish their current condition. Our Security Officers offer a rapid response and will attempt to locate the individual you have concerns for without delay, delivering a suitable response whatever the situation may be.
How to Request a Police Welfare Check?
To request a police safe and well check for somebody, you simply call 999 if you believe the situation to be an emergency, or 101 in any other instance. You will then provide the relevant details and the local police force will be instructed to proceed with a welfare check.
Unfortunately, due to low levels of funding and a lack of available police officers in many areas of the country, there is no guarantee as to when somebody will actually carry out the check and in some instances there may be a wait of many hours.
It goes without saying that this is not ideal, and if you are concerned about someone’s wellbeing then we understand that urgency is required. At My Own Cop we treat every Safe and Well Check as a priority, aiming for a response time of under 20 minutes.
Our Security Officers have the necessary training to deal with any situation, whether that involves a potential threat of violence, medical emergency or anything else.
If you have a family member, friend or neighbour that requires Safe and Well Checks on a regular basis and you have experienced unsatisfactory responses from your local police force in the past, My Own Cop is here to help you take control of the situation.
