The Airwave Health Monitoring Study (AHMS) is a long-term occupational cohort study following up the health of police officers and staff across Great Britain. Originally established to evaluate possible health risks associated with the use of TETRA, a digital communication system used by the police forces and other emergency services, a collaborative team involving Imperial College London, University of Edinburgh, University of Glasgow and University of Manchester, now aims to greatly enhance the AHMS cohort as a major resource for studying the health and well-being of the British police forces.  The University of Manchester is responsible for developing a robust assessment of exposure to a range of risk factors, including psychosocial and environmental.
