A partnership between South East Coast Ambulance Service (SECAmb) and Kent Police will see a vehicle carrying a paramedic and two Special Constables respond to incidents across Medway and Swale.
The joint response unit, which will initially run for a pilot period of six months, will be in operation on Friday and Saturday nights from 2 March and will be assigned to attend incidents requiring a joint attendance.
SECAmb has provided the Mercedes Vito vehicle. Its aims include reducing the number of calls SECAmb needs to make to Kent Police for assistance and dealing more swiftly and effectively with alcohol-related injuries. It is also hoped the unit will provide earlier intervention and investigation of crime and disorder.Read More
