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.
Pay award is bittersweet for under pressure police
Despite some gains for officers in England and Wales, today’s headline announcement of a 2% pay award will leave many angry and deflated, Steve White, chair of the Police Federation of England and Wales, said.
“Police officers do not join the service to make huge amounts of money; they do it out of a sense of duty and this year in particular have been tested to the max. However, they expect to be paid suitably for the immense…ly demanding role they perform and this simply is not the case.”
The 2% award is a 1% pensionable pay rise across the board, plus 1% as an additional amount of money this year, non-pensionable.
“We asked for 2.8% and provided compelling evidence to support this, which on first review appears to be reflected in the recommendations made by the Police Remuneration Review Body (PRRB) – the body which makes recommendations on police pay – to the Government. We were not greedy in what we asked for. Officers have been taking home about 15% less than they were seven years ago. While it is a step in the right direction, the Government should have done this sooner but we don’t feel that non-consolidated pay awards are the way forward.”
The PFEW will now be looking closely at the details in the PRRB report and will provide a further update as to what other recommendations have been made as soon as possible.
Huge congratulations to all the award winners at the Police Federation PoliceBravery Awards held at a fitting event at London’s Dorchester Hotel last Thursday.
North Wales Police nominee, PC Stephen Hooper was accompanied by his wife Michele and Sergeant Mark Jones representing the North Wales Police Federation. It was also an honour to have Assistant Chief Constable Richard Debicki attend plus Sam Roberts from the Police Federation of England & Wales.
Colleagues from Northumbria won the overall award following their truly heroic act when tackling a man armed with weapons including a loaded gun.
These acts by our brave officers are truly amazing and showcase why we have the best police service in the world.
