Vulnerable Persons Unit


The St Helens Vulnerable Persons Unit is a team of specialist officers who investigate criminal offences against vulnerable adults. Criminal investigations may include physical abuse, sexual abuse, financial abuse, emotional abuse and neglect. The unit is specifically designed to investigate allegations where the vulnerable person knows their abuser, for instance if the abuser is a family member or carer.


If you are being abused, or if you suspect that someone you know is being abused, please contact the Vulnerable Persons Unit on 0151 777 1585.
