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

Members can access the advice from the Government, the NHS and the World Health Organisation by visiting the COVID-19 Coronavirus Hub.

There is also specific work to support and guide forces through the crisis and help them to communicate key messages to officers and staff.

It includes advice on self-isolation, social distancing in a public role and coping with quarantine.

Cambridgeshire Police Federation chair Liz Groom said: “This outbreak is presenting us all with an unprecedented challenge. It has caused a massive upheaval for everyone, changing the way we live, the way we work and our contact with family, friends, colleagues and the communities we serve. We have to be able to adapt and we also have to keep up to date with all the latest guidance and advice.

“Oscar Kilo is advising the National Police Chiefs’ Council response around workforce welfare and wellbeing. It has put together this one-stop website providing support to us all by taking existing Government guidance and putting it into a policing context.

“We would encourage members to keep themselves informed of the latest public health and Government advice, which you can access via this hub.”

The hub is open access and is being continually updated with new resources and advice when it becomes available.

The national Federation has also collated information and advice on its COVID-19 page
