||<p>The Home Office does not hold data centrally on the morale of police officers.
It is the responsibility of chief officers - supported by the College of Policing
- to ensure good management systems are in place to support officers in their work.
It is ultimately a matter for chief constables and police and crime commissioners
to monitor the morale and engagement levels of their workforce.</p><p>The Government
recognises the importance of police welfare- in October 2014 we allocated £10m to
help support emergency services personnel and volunteers, focused on mental health,
physical recuperation and bereavement support for those who need it.</p><p>£4m was
allocated to the charity Mind specifically for mental health issues to cover financial
years 2014/15 and 2015/16.</p>
