Locked Out of a Vehicle

Being locked out of your vehicle can be upsetting and distressing. In certain cases the police will attend, however usually you will be advised to contact one of the following;

  • Breakdown service 
  • Locksmith
  • Car garage

When will the police attend?

The police will only attend if:

  • there is a distressed child locked in the car
  • there is a distressed animal locked in the car
  • you are in a vulnerable situation (eg lone female late at night or disabled driver)

Please note: In these circumstances it may be difficult for an officer to gain entry to your vehicle without causing damage to it. Any assistance offered is on the understanding that the individual officers or the Constabulary will not be held liable for any damage.

How do I report it?

If you are locked out of your vehicle and require police attendance, contact us by calling 101 or visit a police station in person.
