Staffordshire Police Federation members can now get the information they need on the go, thanks to a new smartphone APP.

The Federation says the APP, available to download for free on Apple and Android devices, will help them improve communications with their members by offering all the latest advice, FAQs and documents officers need.

Staffordshire Police Federation Chairman Phil Jones said: “When I became Chairman, one of the things I wanted to do was to improve communication with our members, and the APP allows us to do that.

“It’s easy to use and really is a one-stop-shop. Whether you’re searching for regulations or needing travel insurance documents, it’s all there.

“The APP also has a feedback section, so that members can contact me in real-time and give good and bad comments and it has sections on wellbeing and the latest news.”

The APP also allows members to receive instant messages from the Federation.

“Sending out real-time messages to the membership improves our ability to communicate,” Phil added.

“We’re very proud of it, and we hope our members will like it.”
