Dear Colleagues,

You may be aware that the Department for Transport and the Home Office with the National Police Chiefs’ Council are currently conducting a review of Roads Policing.

As part of this they are gathering evidence from police officers about what roads policing really looks like in terms of amount of time and type of activity, when compared against non-roads policing work.

In order to help do this, they have put together a short survey for police officers which runs until 25 March 2020.

The link is here: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/FOOT1/

The survey is designed for ALL officers to complete, not just roads policing officers. 

The data will be anonymous with the usual safeguards in place around personal information.

The survey itself was launched at our Roads Policing conference in January – and PFEW is very supportive as it is vital that the voices of our members are heard, and their experiences fed into the review.

The link to the survey will also be included in tomorrow’s (Tuesday) Fed Matters bulletin which is circulated directly to reps. But I wanted to ensure that you were also briefed.

Please can I ask you to encourage your members to complete the survey. And feel free to circulate the link yourselves as it is better that people get it twice than not at all!

If you have any questions, please give me a shout.

Many thanks,

Gemma
