Police forces across the country will be highlighting and celebrating the successes of their response police officers in June. There are lots of events and CPD opportunities to book on during the week find out more here.

Monday 26 June, marks the beginning of the third 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, throughout the 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, and we will be assisting with some of the webinars around nutrition and Operation Hampshire.

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.

The College of Policing will be hosting the events throughout the week, each session will be recorded and will be accessible via the Knowledge Hub for anyone who wants to watch again or catch up.

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.
