Retired Police Officers


Knowledgeable & Multi-skilled


Enhanced DBS (CRB) Checked

Organisations & Businesses

All of our tradespeople, decorators and relief caretakers are Enhanced DBS Checked retired police officers and we carry £5m Public Liability cover.

We work with local authorities and housing associations to deliver decorating, relief caretaking, responsive repairs and planned maintenance in sensitive locations such as care homes, sheltered housing and schools.

We are Safe Contractor and Constructionline accredited.


Founded as a pilot in Bromley in 2013 we’ve had more than 100 retired officers sign up to the service. We currently operate in over 50 boroughs across England, Wales and North Ireland.

The core characteristics of trust and reliability that you would expect of retired police officers are as important to the large organisations we work with as they are to the domestic residents who we assist.

Precise skills vary by area and typically we assist with voids, decorating, minor plumbing, grounds maintenance and general indoor/outdoor maintenance tasks. We also provide relief caretakers to schools and care homes to cover caretaker/site manager absence. In specific areas we have domestic electricians, carpenters and other trades.

We work both as a contractor with organisations directly or with the residents themselves, dependent on your needs.

I was very pleased with the work that was done. Brian was very courteous and kept me informed at all stages so I could choose how to proceed. I would use Trust in Blue again with no hesitation.
