About this deal
As the National Police Chief’s Council (NPCC) lead for Investigator Resilience, I am delighted to publish the second iteration of the wellbeing of investigators toolkit. The toolkit has been delivered by the ‘Wellbeing of Investigators’ working group whose aim is to understand the national picture relating to the wellbeing of detectives/police staff investigators (PSIs). The group is chaired by DCS Martin Brunning, and they are working closely with colleagues in the College of Policing, Oscar Kilo, Police Federation, Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and force champions to identify best practice and share it with colleagues nationally. Senior leaders, line managers and individual investigators have a duty to proactively improve wellbeing among this group. Across UK policing there is an absolute plethora of wellbeing interventions, initiatives and measures available. However, to date we have not had a central repository for interventions, any measure of their effectiveness and there has been much duplicated effort.

They can solve the "Case of the Disappearing Diamonds" with our Crime Scene Science Kit. With it, they'll learn how to dust and fume for fingerprints, practice simulated forensic blood typing, and more! We also offer a refill of this kit's consumable items, so you can use it year after year with a new classroom of kids. The role of a detective and PSI is incredibly rewarding but can also be extremely challenging and can have an adverse impact on health and wellbeing. It is therefore more important than ever for officers, staff and supervisors to look after themselves and each other and I encourage you to access the resources in this toolkit.
We know that the role of a detective and a police staff investigator is incredibly rewarding but the personal sacrifices investigators make, the responsibility of supporting victims, the continual exposure to trauma and the high workloads can impact heavily on their wellbeing. I would urge everyone to familiarise themselves with this resource regardless of your current state of wellbeing. As we know, our mental health, like our physical health fluctuates, so it is wise to build resilience, and to stay as healthy as possible when our work is demanding, traumatic and often relentless. I urge senior leaders to consider the benefits of interventions not currently available in your force and to continue to share your evidence-based solutions with this community.

The Durham University 2019 National Police Wellbeing Survey demonstrated that investigators, both staff and officers, experience the lowest levels of wellbeing across policing, and particularly suffer from a loss of emotional energy. The poor wellbeing of investigators is also well documented in other academic research.Our 2019 National Police Wellbeing Survey demonstrated that investigators, both staff and officers, experience the lowest levels of wellbeing across policing, and particularly suffer from a loss of emotional energy.
