The Federation Elections Are Open

The new regulations governing the organisation became law on 31 December 2017 and they now enable us to carry out elections under a new process as outlined in the 2014 Independent Review.

Nominations for workplace reps opened across England and Wales on 1 February 2018. You can find out more about the elections below. Links to the online voting and nomination sites for reps and members have been sent out via their PNN email addresses when their is an opportunity to get involved.

Election of Workplace Representatives 2018

You could make a difference in force by supporting and representing your colleagues, while also learning new skills. Find out more about being a Federation Representative by taking a look through the ‘Useful Information’ box on the right of the nomination page here – Nomination Portal & Information

There are lots of roles and opportunities within the Federation, locally and at a national level, and across a range of disciplines e.g. conduct and performance, professional development, equality, detectives and roads policing, to name a few. Some roles are full time, but you don’t have to give up your normal job – Workplace Reps do their work alongside being a police officer.

If you have questions about being a Rep in your force, you can find the contact details for your Federation Branch within the ‘Further Information’ , or alternatively email us at the Local Branch Office.
