As National Secretary of the Police Federation of England and Wales, I am writing to invite you to take part in this year’s Pay and Morale Survey.
Your responses will form a critical part of the evidence the Federation submits to the Police Remuneration Review Body (PRRB), which is the independent organisation that advises Government on your annual pay uplift.
As police officers we understand the importance of evidence. The results of this survey under-pins the evidence base we use to make the case on your behalf for improved pay or allowances.
The PRRB consistently praises the Federation for quality of our evidence. And it achieves results. Last year, we argued for the removal of the bottom pay point on the sergeants’ scale. This year that change is coming into effect. This is just one example of the positive impact that this survey has.
So, my plea to you is this: if you care about your pay and conditions, please take 15 minutes to complete this survey and help us fight for you. The more officers complete the survey, the greater the credibility of our research. This will be 15 minutes of your time well spent.
Your evidence will also empower your local Federation to influence Chiefs and local MPs of the need for change, when pushing for better conditions.
Clearly, your voice can have a massive impact.
