Following on from a very successful national recruitment campaign for serving Police Officers in 2015, we will now be running a national campaign for the new groups that became eligible in January 2016. These groups include; PCSO’s, Special Constables and Detention/Custody Officers (employed by the Chief Constable or Police Crime Commissioner).
These new groups can now receive the same benefit as serving and retired Officers and after signing up, can become eligible to receive treatment at the PTC should injury or illnesses occur.
It doesn’t matter if the injury occurs on or off duty, or if it is a physical injury or even issues relating to your psychological wellbeing, our aim is to help you recover. Our focus is on the whole person, not just about getting you back to work, but also ensuring you are able to continue with all your activities/responsibilities out of work; whether that be playing with your children, taking part in a sport, or even walking your dog, #MoreThanJustAPoliceOfficer.
When a non-donating officer signs up there is normally an initial 12 months before they can access treatment. However if an officer within these groups signs up during the campaign, between May, June & July, they will receive amnesty from this waiting time, and be able to access treatment straight away.
Every year the PTC helps thousands of Officers who have been injured or fallen ill to return to better health and wellbeing. If you fall into one of these groups, you too could benefit from this support.
To set up a regular donation to the PTC and benefit from this amnesty, please sign up using the appropriate forms during May, June or July!
During the campaign we will be running a social media campaign More Than Just A Police Officer. Please help us increase awareness and support of the PTC by spreading the word on social media using the hashtag #MoreThanJustAPoliceOfficer.
