Thames Valley Police Federation, as part of the Police Federation of England and Wales, is the representative body of police officers below the rank of Superintendent.
Established by the Police Act of 1919, the Police Federation was introduced to provide officers with a platform to bring their views on welfare and efficiency to the notice of the government and police authorities.
Our Core Purpose:
In May 2014, the organisation’s core purpose changed for the first time since the Federation was set up in 1919 when the Interim National Board and Interim National Council enshrined that PFEW agrees that in fulfilling its statutory responsibilities for the welfare and efficiency of its members the Federation at all levels will:
• ensure that its members are fully informed and that there is the highest degree of transparency in decision-making and use of resources • maintain exemplary standards of conduct, integrity and professionalism • act in the interests of the members and the public, seeking to build public confidence in the police service and accepting public accountability for its use of public money • work together within the Federation and in partnership with others in the policing world to achieve its goals
