Police forces across the country will be highlighting and celebrating the successes of their response police officers this coming week (Monday, 13th June).

The date marks the beginning of the second national response policing ‘Week of Action’, which in addition to celebrating the professionalism and courage of response officers, is also an opportunity to recognise the challenges facing response policing and consider the future development of a key role that sits at the heart of policing.

We are supporting the National Police Chiefs' Council (NPCC), College of Policing, and the Police Federation, this week to deliver a range of initiatives, co-ordinated specifically to support, develop and recognise the role of response officers.

Our wellbeing vans and dogs will be deployed across the UK, along with a series of webinars from our team around sleep, fatigue, and resilience.

We know response policing isn’t a 9-5, Monday to Friday job, so the resources we’re providing are also available online so you can access them whenever is most convenient to you.

All the sessions we’re hosting throughout the week are also being recorded and will be accessible via the Knowledge Hub.

These ‘weeks of action’ are a great opportunity to let you know what is available to you, but also as a reminder that we are here to support you, and your force, not just during this week, but all year round.
