Met Police Bromley

Bromley Police would like to join the alliance. The support of the alliance will help us improve our service delivery to the most vulnerable and improve officer awareness.

Bromley Dementia Action Alliance

1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

Improved awareness of Dementia will support our officers in recognising the signs and highlight the most vulnerable in our community. We would use this information to improve crime prevention, work with other public service providers and ensure the most vulnerable receive the appropriate levels of support. I would also promote improved partnership working with colleagues from LFB and LAS.

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

Bromley Police are already working to improve the service provided to the most vulnerable; however we want to enhance this by working to improve awareness across all dept's as well as learning best practise from other providers and support a more joined up approach. Keeping people's knowledge and awareness will be a challenge, more so with a fairly quick turn around of staff, but a local spoc would be nominated and this would be included in the regular training rounds for officers.
