Have Your Say With The National Police Wellbeing Survey

HAMPSHIRE Police officers are being urged to fill in the National Police Wellbeing Survey, so that the force can see what improvements are needed in its wellbeing support.

The annual survey, which is now in its fourth year, gives everyone working in policing an opportunity to have their say on the current state of wellbeing provision offered by forces.

The survey is led by the National Police Wellbeing Service, Oscar Kilo, and is run by the Policing Research Unit at Durham University with support from the College of Policing.

Hampshire Police Federation Chair Zoë Wakefield said: “This survey is really important, as we can get Hampshire-specific statistics from it. We can compare figures against previous years, so we can see whether things have improved or not.

“That gives us leverage to ask the force to improve wellbeing provision if there are things that are clearly missing.

“It’s the only way that the force can really get a flavour of if what they’re doing is having an impact on working conditions, and it gives them that indication on what they need to focus on going forward.”

Andy Rhodes, Director for the National Police Wellbeing Service, said: “Each year, we respond directly to the findings from the survey, creating practical support at both an organisational and individual level. In the past, we’ve done this in areas such as trauma, fatigue and physical fitness, and so we want every member of the police service to feel reassured that it’s worthwhile taking part and that we will act upon the findings.

Zoë added: “All Hampshire officers have been emailed the survey, so keep an eye out for it and please fill it in.”
