Our Work

Staffordshire Police are working with partners to improve the services provided to people experiencing mental health crisis. This is some of the work we have been involved with. 

Staffordshire Police have been engaging with partners to ensure that the services provided to people experiencing mental health crisis are improved. This has included:

  • Reducing the number of people taken to Police custody following detention under the Mental Health Act.
  • Working with partners to improve access to health based places of safety.
  • Training staff to ensure better understanding of the issues faced by people experiencing mental health crisis.
  • Minimising the use of Police vehicles to transport people experiencing mental health issues.
  • Improved information sharing amongst partners to ensure the most appropriate care for individuals.

Staffordshire Police has been a key partner in devising Action Plans as part of the Mental Health Crisis Care Concordat and we are committed to continuing to work with our partners in this important area.
