The Airwave Health Monitoring Study is an ongoing occupational cohort study among police force employees across all Great Britain. It includes 53,000 participants. The Study collects a wide variety of data, including clinical and biological markers, genomics and metabolomics data, and constitutes a valuable research resource. It is an integral part of the National Institute for Health Research Imperial BioResource, which lies within the Healthcare Trust and Biomedical Research Centre. It is also a Research Tissue Bank. The study is overseen by a steering committee representing the principal funders (Home Office), representatives of the forces and Police Federation, and external scientific advisers.
