Police Magazine

June's edition of Police magazine is now online on the Police Federation website.

Here is a link to this month's Police magazine: http://www.policemag.co.uk/editions/Police_July_2014.aspx

This month's edition includes an interview with Steve White, elected as chair of PFEW at the Police Federation's annual conference. He talks about the importance of trust and ensuring officers voices are being heard at the highest levels.

Station Sgt voices his personal take on the Home Secretary's speech and dismay at the way officers are treated, Mr Clive C writes a heart-felt column on police divorce rates and the impact of a career in the police on family. Blogger Tom Scholes-Fogg highlights the incredible work of officers in the face of assaults. Mick Richardson from Suffolk talks about how they are tackling change and their new inclusive constitution.

The edition also features coverage from the Police Federation's annual conference - debates around the Independent Review, Home Secretary's speech and reaction, BME women in the service, the PFEW survey which found nearly two thirds of the public would feel less safe in the local area if budgets continue to be cut. The Federation will now be opened up to Special Constables who wish to become members. There is also news from the constables, sergeants and inspectors - stress, shift patterns and cuts. The Joint Central Committee has now become the Interim National Board.
