  • The Police Federation will be able to communicate direct to officers on key information such as pay and conditions after constructive talks with ACPO mean they can now hold a national database of their members. Steve Evans, vice-chair of the Police Federation and lead on the database, announced the move today, describing it as a ‘major stepping stone’ forward in shaping the future of the organisation. The creation of the national database is one of the key recommendations made in the Independent Review of the Police Federation of England and Wales which suggested it should happen ‘as soon as possible’.

  • Police Federation rep Paul Ford said: “While the Crime Survey of England and Wales shows a general downward trend in crime, it’s important to recognise this is not the whole picture. Officers have been doing an incredible job to combat crime against a back drop of cuts but the cracks are beginning to show and they are telling us they are under pressure. “Sexual offences are increasing which may be due to increased awareness and reporting but it’s an issue we have to take incredibly seriously and monitor the situation. We have seen many of our specialist teams and units, who deal with such crimes, cut or under threat.

  • General Secretary Andy Fittes said: “The latest police workforce national statistics for England and Wales show that numbers of police workers are now at a 12 year low. “Cuts to policing have put a strain on all aspects of the service and while officers have been doing an incredible job to bridge the gaps, cracks are beginning to show and they are telling us they are feeling the pressure. “The nature of offending is starting to change but we have seen many of our specialist teams and units, who work to address these changes, cut or under threat. “While officers throughout the country continue to work incredibly hard on a daily basis keeping society safe, it would be wrong to assume these cuts aren’t starting to have a noticeable effect.”
