The Pegasus scheme is for anyone who has a disability or illness that may make it hard to communicate with the police in an emergency or difficult situation.
By registering Cambridgeshire Police can keep your pre-registered information safe on our computer and can access it quickly if you call them. You don’t need to repeat all your details.
Who can register?
- Anyone who has a disability or illness that may make it hard to communicate with the police in an emergency or difficult situation.
- Registration is free.
How it works
Cambridgeshire Constabulary register your personal details, including your phone number, on their police systems so that anytime you call their control room they’ll instantly see a Pegasus marker attached to your name or number.
- This marker is opened by the call handler who can then see all your communication needs. This means that they can access your details even if you can’t talk to them.
- Alternatively, you can say ‘Pegasus’, tell them your PIN and they will access your details right away.
- You can also show your card to a police officer, member of police staff or other emergency services staff if you need assistance in person and they’ll know you may need extra help and support.
- You can change or update your details at any time.
- If you agree, they will share your Pegasus information with other participating emergency services (fire, ambulance) and local authorities.
