PISP is a peer-led support programme, for officers and staff who are subject to post incident procedures, IOPC or PSD investigations. The programme provides training to support colleagues with Demobilisation and remobilisation techniques to allow them to reflect and return to work in a safe, controlled and appropriate manner.

Although originally directed towards firearms officers, this training programme has been expanded to encompass any area of policing from which a traumatic event can originate.

Instances include:

  • deaths following police contact
  • fatal police vehicle collisions
  • terrorist or disaster Investigations
  • hostage negotiation
  • subsequent command and control communication events

    (and many more)

Is this course for me?

PISP Training covers the following areas:                                               

  • skills to demobilise and defuse officers
  • conducting a situational and personal assessment of needs and the skills of how and when to refer the officer(s)/staff

This is a one-day training course.

What previous delegates are saying about this course

Really helpful. Good to have a 'formal' process to guide us through.

The trainers have a very good working knowledge and they passed this on to us without it being 'death by PowerPoint.' The training team kept us engaged by allowing us to interact.

The training materials were good throughout the course. They were very informative.

The course was a good experience and it allowed me to develop a much better working knowledge of the PIM process and how to support colleagues.
