ABOUT ERSOU

The Eastern Region Special Operations Unit, ERSOU, oversees and delivers a regional response to Serious and Organised Crime and Counter Terrorism Policing in the Eastern Region. ERSOU is made up of police officers and police staff from across the region and works closely with the seven constituent forces, local and national partners.

The Regional Operational Security Advisor (OpSy) provides advice on the security, integrity and ethical conduct of all law enforcement techniques, particularly covert tactics across ERSOU and the constituent forces.
