On Friday, Saturday and Sundays, 19:00-08:30 two Mental Health practitioners are on duty. One is based in police station to attend and conduct face to face interventions and the other is based in Force control room screening all police calls, offering advice and clinical information to patrolling officers. Both staff have access to RIO and Police Systems in order to provide a more complete picture, allowing officers to make better informed decisions and access to a range of options.

Outcome

Improvement in service provided to vulnerable persons and improved appropriate decision making by police officers.
