Transcript of P5 - Describe the different types of teams that operate with

Formal & Informal teams
Formal teams are those who work together all the time, such as a team working in a specific department, e.g. responding to organized crime reports. These teams also have a defined structure.

Informal teams, however, come together on an ad-hoc basis. For example, teams responding to an RTC may vary, depending on who is in the area at the time.
Size
Teams within the Police Service can vary in size. Small teams consist of approximately 10- people, medium 10-50 people (approx) and large teams consisting of approximately 50+ people.

Small teams in the Police Service include the driver and other officer in a vehicle during a simple arrest. However, if this if this car is involved in a car chase, it may become part of a large team: including a possible helicopter team, armed response unit, uniformed officers and even a dog unit.
Temporary project / task teams
Temporary teams are teams that come together to complete one specific task, disbanding once this is achieved.

An example of this in the Police Service would be a murder investigation team who, once the evidence is gathered and given to the crown prosecution service, would disband.
Permanent groupings
These are similar to formal teams, but are permanently formed. An example would be a department within the police headquarters, e.g. the unit investigating thefts.
