Chief Constable Andy Rhodes talks at the Police Superintendents annual conference in 2016.

He focuses on the acknowledgment that emergency services staff are often exposed to very challenging situations and at times significant trauma and therefore, the improvement in not only provision, but the culture within emergency services to support staff is absolutely imperative. He focuses on the fact that leadership at every level must acknowledge this and ensure that our staff are recognised and valued for the work they do. We must create the right environment that can provide support for those who need it.
