Specialist officers are equipped and trained to use this type of equipment. The MPS First Aid Clinical Review Panel, a panel of volunteer trauma experts, has not recommended that police issue the kits more widely at this stage to its officers.

The Panel regularly reviews all of the trauma cases alongside LAS colleagues. It is otherwise supportive of campaigns which support events and premises equipping and training their own employees in accordance with their individual operating environments.
