Cambridgeshire Constabulary’s Disability Support Network have announced a scheme called Pegasus which is designed to help people who have difficulty communicating when they come into contact with emergency services.
By joining the scheme, information that which might be difficult for them to provide – such as name, address or contacts – will be held on a secure database.
Members are given a card and unique PIN which can be used when contacting the emergency services by phone, online or in person.
The card can be shown to officers in person, and is intended for use by anyone with communication challenges.
