Some of our building colleagues at the Police Credit Union are trekking in the heat of the desert through the Grand Canyon - in a bid to raise £16,000 for Children Today. Started on the 8th June, the spectacular eight day journey will take the Police CU team through one of the world’s greatest wonders, up and down steep, rocky, mountain tracks and through breath-taking scenery. All have ensured the full costs of participating are already covered and so proceeds from the site all go to helping UK children with disabilities via the Children Today Charitable Trust. Please help them raise as much as possible by making a donation today.
The Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW) await confirmation of the exact details of the remuneration for officers deployed on Mutual Aid as part of Operation Sponsor (G8 Summit). The position of the PFEW is that payments and allowances specified in Police Regulations and Determinations must form the basis of any remuneration during G8 and be the minimum entitlement for officers.
In this joint review, HMIC and HM Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate (HMCPSI) found that while significant effort has been made in recent years to improve efficiency in both the custody and criminal justice process, there are still a number of issues identified in past reports on this subject which continue to generate delays in processing cases. Tom Cuddeford Deputy Chair asks for any views or concerns to feedback.
At a meeting yesterday with PSNI in Belfast, Ian Rennie and I made it clear that officers undertaking mutual aid at the G8 summit must be paid in accordance with current Regulations and Determinations. Message from Chairman of PFEW, Steve Williams: There remains a lack of clarity about this from the PSNI, and in turn ACPO and the Home Office, and we are seeking to reach a swift confirmation from them in the coming days. I will keep you updated as to any developments but PFEW has been clear that we do not expect anything more than what our officers are rightly entitled to and that their entitlements must be upheld.
For those of you deploying to G8 please find attached the latest G8 newsletter.
