North Wales Police Federation aim to effectively support our Officers and promote the efficiency of the North Wales Police.
We will endeavour to represent and negotiate for our members in a robust, open and honest manner to ensure that officers are treated fairly and considerately at all times by the Force.
We aim to provide a professional and caring service to our members with a view to fostering a relationship which is founded on trust, confidentiality and respect on both sides. We will endeavour to build on that relationship to determine the most appropriate support, advice and action relevant to the individual needs and issues.
Officers have enough to deal with without having to worry about money too
New research conducted by the Police Federation of England and Wales reveals that more police officers than ever before are seriously concerned about their finances.
In North Wales 40% said they worry about money either every day or almost every day.
71% said they felt that they were worse off financially than they were five years ago.
And 11% reported never or almost never having enough money to cover all their essentials.
Mark Jones, General Secretary of the North Wales Police Federation said: “This research must shock whoever forms the next government in to action. Every day police officers go to work to protect and serve the public to the best of their ability putting themselves in harm’s way and in some tragic cases making the ultimate sacrifice.
“They deal with enough stress and trauma at work and it is scandalous they are being put in the position where they are having to dealing with additional anxiety caused by money worries when they get home.
“Our members must be paid fairly for the job they do and should not be put in the unforgivable position of having to borrow from friends or family just to make ends meet.”
