Tom Cuddeford our Interim Chair says: “West Midlands officers fully support the wider availability of Taser. Set against a reduction of 2000 officers in the last five years and a rise in both demand and threat Taser is important for the protection of both the public and officers themselves. “I echo the sentiments of our national chair, Steve White, who outlines the clear need for the support of chief constables and Police and Crime Commissioners across England and Wales, to ensure a wider rollout of Taser and to press government for increased funding to assist with this.

The University of West of England, Bristol has published results of a survey undertaken on police morale as a result of government reforms.
West Midlands Police Federation commissioned an initial psychosocial risk assessment for West Midlands Police officers that was conducted in February-March 2012. The study produced baseline data on officers’ exposure to stress-related working conditions and associations between these exposures and individual health (burnout) and organisational effectiveness (intention to leave and job performance). The UK Health and Safety Executive recommends that organisations conduct psychosocial risk assessments at regular intervals. The report details findings from a psychosocial risk assessment conducted in April-May 2013. As per the 2012 study, this was commissioned by the West Midlands Police Federation and had as its focus West Midlands Police officers across all federated ranks

Dear Colleagues, we have been requested by the National Federation to complete the below survey regarding the new College of Policing. Your input will assist directly in influencing how the professional body operates. National Federation Rep's have been identified, from all three Rank's, who will be pressing hard for the College to recognise and respond to Police Officer views, so that the body is truly OUR Professional Body and not just something that's imposed on us and adds no value to the service.
We have been asked to assist with a survey which is being conducted by Professor Jennifer Brown, Deputy Chair of the Independent Commission into the Future of Policing in England and Wales. The Independent Police Commission, as a consequence of the findings of the earlier surveys, is seeking further information from Federation members.
