Police Safeguarding response to COVID-19
The MPS has a BRAG status that reviews service delivery according to business continuity needs. Currently we are in Green state and all services are being delivered. Safeguarding hub services (MASH, Child Protection Conferences, Missing Persons, and Exploitation) and Safeguarding Investigations will continue throughout all BRAG states due to our ongoing requirement to manage risk and meet statutory requirements. This includes face to face service delivery.
Resources are likely to be redirected into safeguarding if required. Should we experience significant abstractions and resilience issues, cases will be triaged and managed on a risk basis. In summary, the aim of the MPS is to maintain safeguarding service delivery.
