In 2016, the Police Dependants’ Trust published Injury on Duty, a major research piece by the University of Surrey, that explored the impact of and support received by serving and former police officers in England and Wales.

The results were startling:

82% of frontline officers have been injured on duty (76% in last 5 years)

1 in 6 have taken a week or more off work in the last 5 years due to PTSD

86% said the service must prioritise mental health needs following a major incident.
