Contact the press office

The core function of the MPS Press Office is to provide media handling support to members. If you find yourself in the media spotlight please get in touch and we can provide expert advice and support, including liaising with journalists and providing statements on your behalf.

Media scrutiny of you and your practice could put your personal and professional reputation at risk. Early advice from the MPS Press Office can help mitigate risks and we can help you respond to the media and deal with them on your behalf.

The Press Office is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

If you need advice or guidance on handling media enquiries, please call or email a member of the Press Office, or for out of hours media support (5.30pm – 8.30am GMT) please call +44 (0) 113 243 6436.
