How to use
Please use this film on your intranet, in briefings and team meetings.
If the film is being shown at a meeting or briefing, please encourage conversations to identify any barriers to reporting and encourage individuals to see they are not alone.
Signposting should be to your local Op Hampshire SPOC and or Op Hampshire intranet page and if your force is using the Op Hampshire App please signpost accordingly to encourage reporting.
Share the details of this film in internal news articles and newsletters to enable officers and staff to watch in their own time.
Please signpost to Oscar Kilo for more information on what we do nationally to support the wellbeing of officers and staff.
As police officers and police staff we face confrontation and aggression on a regular basis, particularly if we are serving in front line roles but being physically assaulted is not something we should accept as 'part of the job'.
Oscar Kilo, the National Police Wellbeing Service, has developed this campaign to improve the way assaults are understood, talked about and reported. Remember, you are not on your own, Operation Hampshire is here for you and together is stronger.
