The Government is very keen to support the police and ensure that they have the resources and tools they need to protect themselves and the public.

We welcome the National Police Chiefs’ Council led Officer Safety Review and intend to use its findings and recommendations to inform the development of further proposals under the Police Covenant. The Review was commissioned by the NPCC and therefore it has been for them to determine its scope and timing. Police protection and wellbeing was discussed within the last meeting of the National Policing Board on Tuesday 8 October.
