Coronavirus: Oscar Kilo launches information hub

1 April 2020

Guidance and resources relating to the coronavirus have been brought together in one place on an online hub by Oscar Kilo, the National Police Wellbeing Service.

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

Oscar Kilo is carrying out specific work to support and guide forces through the crisis and help them to communicate key messages to officers and staff.

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

Derbyshire Police Federation chair Tony Wetton said: “This is a unique situation that is constantly changing, and we are all having to learn to adapt. It’s an unprecedented challenge that is affecting the way we live, work and interact with each other, and that is going to have an impact on people.

“Oscar Kilo is advising the National Police Chiefs’ Council response around workforce welfare and wellbeing and is providing support to all forces by taking existing Government guidance and translating it into a policing context.

“This is a really helpful online resource, which is free, and we would encourage members to use it to keep themselves informed of the latest advice and information.”

As well as being able to access the national information and guidance, the hub is home to a resource library with infographics to use in the Force and advice on working from home and self-isolating.

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

Visit the Oscar Kilo hub.

The national Federation also has a dedicated coronavirus section.
