In total 1,920 police officers and staff from the Met Detention operational command unit (OCU) have been trained in police bail since 3rd April 2017, via face to face training. This training is supplemented by an online training course on the same subject. Further training about bail and domestic violence was also delivered in 2018, and additional updates are circulated ad hoc through regular OCU newsletters.
