Pulse: Supporting The National Police Chiefs’ Council
Pulse Insurance Limited are pleased to support The National Police Chiefs’ Council which is asking employers to consider providing paid leave to Special Constables so they can support the police service in managing the impact of the Coronavirus.
In the wake of the national crisis created by Covid-19, police forces across the UK have come under increasing strain as they try to maintain business-as-usual policing while managing rising levels of sickness and self-isolation of officers and staff.
There are currently more than 10,000 Special Constables in the UK - warranted officers with all the powers of a regular police officer who volunteer their services. They are deployed in their local communities to support the day-to-day operations of their forces and, crucially, provide resilience at critical times.
Pulse are pleased that one of its Norwich staff is released to support this worthy cause on an as required basis.
Chair of the National Police Chiefs’ Council, Martin Hewitt, said:
“Our Special Constables play a vital role in the police service, a service which will be placed under great strain over the coming months. Businesses who are able to release their staff to undertake these important roles will be supporting the national effort against Covid-19 by helping us to maintain services and keep people safe.”
Torquil McLusky, Pulse’s Managing Director, said:
“We are delighted to provide our Special Constable employees with additional paid leave to allow them to undertake policing duties, helping to meet this unique call to action from police and government.”
