Response policing week of action

Published on 8 June 2022
Response policing week of action begins on Monday 13 June – a week celebrating response policing, with opportunities to get involved
3 mins read

Response policing week of action provides an opportunity to recognise and support the officers and staff who respond to calls for help.

Throughout the week we are:

  • sharing resources for response police officers
  • sharing case studies from tutor constables working on response
  • holding online events to share knowledge and support officer and staff wellbeing

Response is at the core of policing’s crime fighting mission and we must look after the officers and staff who are responding to calls from the public and confronting criminals day and night.

This week of action is an opportunity to celebrate response teams and highlight the wellbeing support and practical guidance the College of Policing offers.

We have created a range of resources specifically with response officers in mind so those in policing’s most demanding roles get the learning and leadership they deserve.
