Our sole mission is to care for the people behind the uniform after injury on duty, and their loved ones.

The Police are there for you when you need them most. They are the ones you call when everything goes wrong. They are the ones who comfort you after tragedy. They are the heroes running towards danger while telling you to run for safety.

And they are the people who will be attacked at work just for being a police officer.

110 of them will be injured on duty today. And another 110 tomorrow. And another 110 the day after. In fact, it is 110 every day – imagine going to work knowing that you stand a good chance that today is your day. Perhaps you’ll be lucky and only get spat at, kicked or punched. Or maybe you won’t be quite so lucky…

Last year, over 23,000 police officers were seriously injured on duty – equivalent to 10% of the entire UK police force. Or the population of Bangor. Some of them will never recover, leaving loved ones with no hope, no future, and no support. Those that do need constant support and care. That’s where the Police Dependants’ Trust comes in.
