Police and local businesses in Dumfries and Galloway have teamed up to create 'Keep Safe' places in the area.
The safe places are for disabled, vulnerable, and elderly people to seek assistance and help if they are lost or in danger.
The scheme is also running across Renfrewshire, Inverclyde, the Scottish Borders, Dundee, Perth & Kinross, and Edinburgh.
Keep Safe was originally set up in Renfrewshire by the I Am Me charity.
There are over 20 safe places within Dumfries & Galloway, and around 300 across Scotland.
Police Scotland says they hope to get more people involved by the end of the year:
The Stove, High Street, Dumfries have recently signed up to the scheme:
All Keep Safe Places are publicised on the free Keep Safe Scotland app and on the I Am Me Scotland's website.
