The Joint Response Unit (JRU) in Gwent is a collaboration between Gwent Police and the Welsh Ambulance Service Trust (WAST). It was introduced in 2016 with the aim of jointly addressing and reducing demand on both organisations created by incidents attended by the police that required an ambulance and vice versa. The operation consists of an ambulance service vehicle, which is staffed by a professional paramedic and a member of the Gwent Police Special Constabulary.This evaluation is being conducted as part of the IPSCJ’s national pilot programme, which is funded by the Police Transformation Fund (PTF), looking at innovative practice in the use of volunteers within policing.
