The Government has set out a vision for a new Police Covenant, recognising the bravery and commitment of officers who work night and day to keep us safe. The covenant will focus on physical protection for officers, their health and wellbeing and support for their families.

The Home Office has been developing the detail of our proposals and continue to work with policing partners and stakeholders as they are finalised.

The government intends to launch a consultation on the principle and scope of the covenant shortly. The consultation will inform the drafting of the Police Protection and Powers Bill, which was announced in the Queen’s speech and will put the covenant on a legislative footing.
