Firearms licensing, operational support and consultancy

Working closely with the National Lead for Armed Policing on the police use of firearms and less lethal weapons, we provide training and operational support to the UK police service in relation to firearms/taser incidents, operations and training.

We offer consultancy on:

  • Planning
  • Command
  • Debriefing
  • Training 

We will advise on:

  • Incidents and operations of national (pan-UK) significance
  • Incidents and operations with unique operational features
  • Incidents and events that have cross-border or regional implications.

On-site services may include:

  • Operational guidance and advice relating to planning and operational practice
  • Strategical advice and guidance on operational considerations, good practice and procedures.
  • Training advice to meet the NPFTC and National Policing approved threshold standards.

Through our research we develop and promote good practice in the Police Use of Firearms in order to enhance operational efficiency and effectiveness. We also provide exchange of information, via our secure access site, POLKA, for the Police Service and the wider police family.
