Changes to Criminal Helpline Number

Circular No: LA/66/18

9th April 2018

To: All Branches, Regional Councils & Regional Offices

Dear Colleague,


I write in relation to the above matter. I have received notification that Powell Spencer Solicitors are currently in the process of installing a new system to handle out of hours calls for the Criminal Helpline. The new system will not be fully installed until the 27th April 2018.  In the meantime members should call on the usual switchboard number, 020 76045600, at all hours in order to access the criminal helpline.

Following 27th April 2018, the office hours number will be 020 76045600, and the new out of hours number will be 020 7624 8888.

I would be grateful if you could bring the contents of this circular to the attention of your members.

Yours sincerely
Mick Cash
General Secretary
