The Paul McKeever Policing Scholarship
We would like to launch the inaugural year (2014) of this Scholarship for supporting research into Policing through our first collaboration with Canterbury Christ Church University. In establishing this Scholarship the Metropolitan Police Federation wanted to recognise the commitment and dedication that had been given to the Police Federation by their former Chairman, colleague and friend, Paul McKeever.
The information, guidance and Determinations in relation to the new payscales have now been circulated and can be viewd on this page.
PFEW are launching a new survey today (March 27th) to gauge officer attitudes to the use of Taser in operational policing. There has not been a survey before which has focused solely on the use of Taser as workplace equipment by operational officers. In 2006 as part of a wider survey on the use of Firearms some questions were asked. No new data has been obtained from our members since that time.
PFEW Pay and Morale survey - headline statistics.
As you are aware, the Research team conducted a survey of pay and morale during February. The response to this was tremendous, and I would like to thank you all for the part you played in ensuring that we had nearly 35,000 responses in one month. That alone suggests how important pay and conditions are to our members. Attached is a short file with some headline statistics. This is based on the sample as a whole. However, I’m sure many of you will be interested in breakdowns by region and rank, and in more detailed analysis. Rather than publish all the data at once, the team intend to publish a series of short reports over the coming months. Please be assured that the data will be used in our submission to the Pay Review Body, and, thanks to the huge response, will be seen as a reliable and credible source of evidence.
