Depends where you are, but some police forces do act as direct contact for these issues. In Scotland the Police will generally act immediately.
I lived in Radford Nottinghamshire, druggy heaven, and I glanced out of the window and saw some bloke seriously beating his wife/girlfriend up, he threw her on to the road from a height, kicked her all over many times, punched her and when she fell picked her up again just so he could punch her again many times
a lad that was staying with us with his boyfriend went over to the restaurant opposite and many came out to watch, the other lad called the police. The aggressor went and the first chap went to see how she was, funny she told him to F,off and mind his own bloody business
the police arrived 2 hours later, WTF.
Why did they take so long and why was she so cross about help, confused me ever since.
You can't buy happiness but you can buy a bike and that's pretty close
