Police Federation Demand, Capacity and Welfare Survey

​Chief Constable Mike Cunningham, College of Policing CEO, said:

"Today's survey highlights police are doing an increasingly difficult job with fewer resources against a backdrop of greater responsibility for the most vulnerable in society and ever more sophisticated criminality.

"A National Police Wellbeing Service has been set up by the College of Policing, with support from the Police Federation, so that officers and staff are given tools to improve their resilience and have access to support after traumatic incidents. An outreach service will attend police stations providing physical and psychological health checks, and leaders across policing will be supported to spot risks and improve wellbeing for their people.

"We want every member of the police service to feel confident that their wellbeing is taken seriously and is properly supported by their respective organisations."
