Local Policing Team

This team are the bread and butter of neighbourhood policing. These Officers respond to 101 and 999 calls given to them by the Force Control Room (FCR). They deploy from various response stations from around the county and could be involved in offences ranging from assaults, burglary and domestic incidents as well as missing persons and concern calls. LPT Officers are also allocated volume and low-level crime to investigat as part of their duty.

Traditionally they're dressed in black tops with black kit vest and carry PPE including an Asp, PAVA spray, rigid handcuffs and some are also trained to carry and use Taser (With the X2 being rolled out to teams now). For those looking to join KRPC, this is the role where you will start as a Student PC before completing a probation period and being allowed to police Kent on your own.

Ford Focus

1.6 TDCi diesel engine, makes this car one of the slowest in the fleet. The backseats are often stained in blood and urine. Handbrake often fails.

Vauxhall Astra

The newest edition to the Kent Police LPT fleet. With a bigger boot capacity than the Focus, you can now place your kitbag inside where a suspect in the back of the car can't reach it. Result.

Ford Mondeo

Another response vehicle. Seen more on the east of the county but also found elsewhere. Has a mean appearance. In traditional Kent Police style it can be found with it's lightbar 6 miles back from the center of the roof.

Ford Kuga

Not just BTP who have them. However there are very few in existance within Kent Police's fleet. Hold good road presence and also more cup holders for the Costas.

Ford Transit
Ford Transit Van

Yes, the picture is not a Transit. You can stop sending letters in. Accomodates VIP transport for 1 in the rear carrigage. Still stinks from it's run out on Friday night. For those prisoners you think might kick out a back window or could s**t themselves.

Volkswagen Crafter
VW Crafter Van

This vehicle is the longest of the LPT fleet; effectively a bus that can carry many many brave men. Used for public order incidents and alike scenarios.

Roads Policing Unit

The Roads Policing Unit (RPU) is an elite specialist unit that focuses on policing mostly the major roads to achieve a number of aims. One of those aims is to tackle crime being committed on UK roads, as well as deny criminals the use of the roads. Within this unit, we have highly trained drivers trained in both the initial and tactical pursuit phases. RPU drivers are trained in Tactical Pursuit And Containment (TPAC), which consists of specialist manoeuvres aimed to bring a pursuit to a safe and controlled ending. RPU also use a number of tactics to prevent pursuits from happening in the first place. Their use is intelligence led, lots of which comes from intelligence on the Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) systems. RPU currently offers PG9 Prohibition, Solo Bike and Serious Collision Investigation courses for substantive members, which are unique to the division. More courses are planned and in-depth operations are also often arranged by all members of RPU.

The Roads Policing Unit is also committed to reducing deaths and injuries as a result from road traffic collisions. To achieve this, officers focus on targeting traffic offenders through enforcement and education alike, as well as investigating the causes of collisions. The RPU fleet consists of a vast range of different vehicles, both marked and unmarked. This provides officers with the tools they need to get criminals off the roads, using unmarked vehicles to discreetly set up a tactical manoeuvre if necessary, and promote road safety.

When you join RPU, you will be given any training that you require, such as your Advanced Driving, Taser & TPAC training. You are required to be a Response, Advanced or TPAC driver before transferring. You are welcome to partake in a ride along with RPU. This will allow you to gain a broader view of what a traffic officer will deal with on an average patrol.

Fun fact: RPU Callsigns the start TD4 denotes it's a 4x4 vehicle.

Tactical Firearms Unit

The Tactical Firearms Unit is formed of Authorised Firearm Officers (AFOs) and Specalist Firearn Officers (SFOs). They are routinely armed at all times with a Glock pistol. They carry extra weapons and equipment in their vehicles. This includes G36 assault rifles, rubber batton round guns, breaching shotguns and flashbang grendes (to name a few). They are deployed under authorisation of the Force Control Room (FCR) Inspector (known as the FIM).

These officers are deployed into the most life threatening situations with the possibility of having to discharge a firearm to save life and limb of themselves or members of the public. Therefore the role requires quick thinking in the most heated situations.

Officers within TFU are also trained to conduct pursuits up and into tactical pursuit phase (TPP) as well as complete armed stops as vehicles, most commonly known as 'hard stops'.

South East Coast Ambulance Service

SECAmb is the ambulance trust that provides an emergency ambulance response to Kent, Sussex and Surrey and North Hampshire. Using an array of vehicles, they respond to various grades of medical and in some cases, social incidents, providing treatment and care at the scene; if required, patients will be taken to an appropriate hospital. SECAmb respond with crews which are primarily in Double Crewed Ambulances (DCAs) but also response capabilities with a number of specialist vehicles and roles, such as those within the Hazardoud Area Response Team (HART) and other like specially trained Critical Care Paramedics(CCP) and Paramedic Practitioners(PP).

You can be part of this divisions as part of the Joint Emergency Response. This is where you perform the role of both Fire and Ambulance and deploy into the necessary role as and when required depending on the incident. This ensures that you are always kept busy when deployments for a single division on their own maybe slower.
