Police Federation Independent Review
Independent Review calls for major reform if the police Federation is to be the trusted voice for frontline officers.
Recommendations from the Review Final Report include:
Recommendation 1: The Federation should adopt immediately a revised core purpose which reflects the Police Federation’s commitment to act in the public interest, with public accountability, alongside its accountability to its members. This should be incorporated in legislation as soon as practicable.
Recommendation 2: A new independent reference group should be established to assist the Federation in ensuring accountability to the public interest and monitor progress on such issues as equality and implementation of the Independent Review recommendations.
