Disaster Victim Identification Trained Staff (8430/19)

Request

How many DVI trained officers you have?

Do they hold any roles in relation to their training such as the recovery of the burned, disfigured, disrupted or decomposing bodies ect?

If they do not who recovers these bodies?

What kit are the DVI cadre entitled to?

Is any of this kit extra to what a standard patrol officer is issued such as thermals or jackets provided to ops units such as the “firearms jackets”?

Is there a policy in place to equip officers with this if they were to be deployed in a foul weather environment?
