ERPT Officer’s Handbook
ER-101 Commander Nuka
1 | Introduction
Emergency Response and Patrol (ERPT) is the foundation for an Officer’s career in the Metropolitan Police. ERPT deal with the largest variety of calls and can be a very exciting and fulfilling role.
ERPT are the largest division within the MET, and officers can use their time in ERPT to learn essential skills and gain a thorough knowledge of policing whilst on ERPT, before progressing onto specialist departments, or taking on responsibilities in senior officer positions, if desired.
The vehicles that ERPT officers have access to are varied and exciting, with more unlocking as officers progress into senior ranks.
2 | Rank Structure
The Metropolitan Police Service follows a comprehensive rank structure and all new recruits start as ‘Probationary Officers’. After meeting set mandatory criteria, Probationary Officers can apply to progress into the role of ‘Constable’, whereby they receive access to new vehicles and can specialise into any of the specialist police divisions.
All members of the Police Service agree to the hierarchy of the rank structure, and orders from higher ranks must be followed. Callsign numbers change based on the rank, but ERPT officers’ callsigns will always start with ‘ER’.

5 | Fundamental Police Powers
Once sworn in, Police Officers are designated powers for use in policing and protecting the communities they serve. Your powers and their uses will be explained during your initial training but there are a few fundamental powers that you may find beneficial to know prior to starting with us.
Section 24 Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 (PACE):
Arrest - To arrest a suspect they must have been placed under caution and have had both the grounds and necessity of the arrest clearly explained to them. An arrest should not be carried out unless you have reasonable grounds to suspect that an offence has been committed, is about to be committed or is currently being committed.
Caution - A person must be told the caution once they are arrested. The caution advises people of their rights while under arrest. The caution does not have to be recited verbatim, as long as the meaning of the caution is not lost. Best practice of course is to remember the caution exactly.
“You do not have to say anything, but it may harm your defence if you do not mention when questioned, something which you later rely on in court. Anything you do say, can be given in evidence”.
Remember, just because you can arrest, this does not mean you have to arrest. Consider alternate methods of dealing with a situation, such as inviting the person to a voluntary interview at a police station on a later occasion, or by reporting them for summons.
Section 1 PACE 1984:
Stop and Search - An officer can stop and search anyone that they have reasonable grounds to suspect that they have any stolen or prohibited articles on them (or in/on their vehicle). You must use the GOWISELY method, in order to ensure your search is lawful you can detain a suspect for a search.
