Public order public safety

The policing of elections provides distinct challenges and associated key considerations, as well as having the potential to attract protest activity.

Forces may require a public order public safety (POPS) command structure and the deployment of trained officers, across a variety of POPS roles, as part of the policing response to elections.

Specific guidance on the policing of elections is contained in theĀ Policing elections APP.
