Rank and file police officers from Avon and Somerset, Cleveland, Derbyshire, Greater Manchester, Gwent, Hertfordshire, North Wales, West Mercia and West Midlands are being invited to vote for their Federation Branch Chair between 14-30 May.
Information on how to vote is currently being sent directly to members from these forces via their PNN email addresses. Where there are contested elections, any Police Federation member, subscribing or non-subscribing, is eligible to vote – find out more about the election process.
The Branch Chair plays a key role in their force, acting as spokesperson and helping to drive the strategic direction of the Branch – find out more about the role on our Reps@Work page.
On election, Branch Chairs automatically become part of the National Council, which elects the National Board and holds it to account for how it runs and leads the organisation – find out more about the structure of the organisation.
The closing date for voting is 11.59pm on Wednesday 30 May.
If your force is not in the list of those holding contested elections for Branch Chair, you can find out who your local reps are, and more about the services and support available through your Branch, by contacting your local Branch.
If you are a member and you have any questions about the elections, please speak to your local Branch.
