The results of the pay and morale survey – which launched yesterday – will influence the Police Federation’s campaigns for fairer pay and conditions, says Staffordshire branch chair Lee Robinson.

He is urging members to complete the survey and have their say on a range of issues affecting officers. It has been combined with the demand, capacity and welfare survey for the first time and aims to gain the views of frontline officers on pay, morale and wellbeing.

Lee said: “We really appreciate our members taking the time and effort to complete the survey. It’s vital to us and will help shape our work in supporting, representing and campaigning for our members.

“Therefore, it’s important that as many members as possible complete the survey to give us as complete a picture as possible. And the more that do complete it, the stronger our voices will be.”

National Federation chair Steve Hartshorn added: “We greatly appreciate members taking the time to support the service by filling in this survey, the information you provide will help us gather crucial evidence to support our efforts. Your opinion matters to us, we are listening.

“The survey is open until 3 October, and will ask questions around your feelings on workload, demand, wellbeing, welfare and pay. I would urge you not to miss out. Have your say.”

Members will receive a link to the survey directly.
