SPEECH BY IAN RENNIE, GENERAL SECRETARY OF THE POLICE FEDERATION OF ENGLAND AND WALES
Journalists from leading media outlets were invited to West Midlands Police Federation’s headquarters at Guardians House on Thursday 29th March for a regional Police Federation press conference aimed at explaining the current crisis in policing. The conference was organised as soon as the national Police Federation announced that it was holding a ballot asking members if they wanted to seek full industrial rights including the right to strike.
Police officers no longer have any trust or faith in the Home Secretary or the Government, according to Paul McKeever, chairman of the Police Federation. He spoke out after the Home Secretary today announced that she would refer the whole of the Winsor 2 report to the Police Negotiating Board.
