AdvantagesAlways respond

DisadvantagesNo help at all in anti social related incidents

"A member of my family is classed as a vulnerable adult because of severe mental illness. The person concerned is able to get around on their own but is unable to relate to people in the street in a normal manner.This is always causing problems because the normal public often take offence and cause my relative to suffer verbal and sometimes even physical abuse. In the last two years Medway police have been involved in over sixty related incidents.To ..." Read review
