Central to an effective response is the ability, once an incident has been correctly categorised, to ensure that the most appropriate resources are deployed. This doesn’t necessarily mean that there is need for an emergency response; indeed many ‘incidents’ can be dealt with in slower time thus making the most efficient use of resources with a consideration for public and officer safety and the potential for collaborative working with other partner agencies.
