Police FD Training: Response Team

Inspector Chamberlain identified three key areas where the training is particularly helpful…

As a Police Officer, the training provides insight to start to understand why people may behave in a certain way (both children and adults) that will inform a method of approach to assist as a communication strategy, in order to be able to respond there and then with incidents/individuals, provide initial support to achieve best evidence/victim care initially and signpost accordingly.

As a peer to be able to maybe identify and address colleague behaviour/attitude.

As a leader (very much as above) but to identify /staff welfare, performance, and attendance with a view of support.

For points 1 and 2, the input would be ideal minimum at foundation stage (initial) and point 3, on leadership courses (i.e., for those in 1st/2nd line manager roles)
