  • Steve Williams, Chair of the Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW) said: “An Independent Review into the PFEW was commissioned in December 2012 to ensure that we were representing the interests of our members in the most effective and efficient way and to examine how we could best serve the public. “Although we have yet to see the findings and recommendations of the Review, we know that the Review Panel has been looking at the financial management within the PFEW and raised concerns at the lack of transparency in some areas. “For the Federation to be a powerful and effective voice for frontline policing, it is essential that we are open and accountable in how our members’ money is spent. Only then can we ensure that the interests of our members and the public are properly served. “We aim to take the findings of the review extremely seriously and will consider how to strengthen our model of financial accountability as part of our considerations into the wider recommendations that are made.”
