Oscar Kilo, the National Police Wellbeing Service, has brought together the latest guidance and resources relating to the coronavirus in one online hub.

Cambridgeshire Police Federation chair Liz Groom is backing calls for tougher laws to be available to prosecute those who ‘coronavirus cough’ in officers’ faces.

Police officers will not be alone if they run into financial problems during the coronavirus outbreak.

Members of public service pension schemes with relevant service will be automatically entitled to the remedy to the unlawful age discrimination within the transitional arrangements identified by the Court of Appeal, it has been confirmed.

The Police Federation of England and Wales has brought together all the current advice on the coronavirus outbreak in one web page.

It covers financial advice and tips for wellbeing as well as providing links to Government guidance and the latest NHS advice.

Cambridgeshire Police Federation chair Liz Groom said: “We want to assure members that we are doing everything we can to ensure their safety and the continuity of policing services while offering continued support for our members.

“The branch has been attending all the Force’s Gold and Silver meetings to help bring together Cambridgeshire’s response to what is an unprecedented crisis.

“It’s important at this time that we have consistency in how the Government and Public Health England’s guidelines on self-isolation and social distancing are implemented – our number one priority is public safety.”
