Fed elections: find out more in Twitter discussion

Dyfed Powys Police Federation members are being urged to get involved with a special Twitter chat highlighting the vital work of the workplace rep.

The hour-long @WeCops session, which gets underway at 9pm on Wednesday (30 June), comes in the run-up to the July elections. 

It will focus on  the incredible work carried out by the reps, how they are supported by the Federation and how officers can still get involved.

The chat is being hosted by Police Federation national chair John Apter tweeting as @PFEW_Chair and  national wellbeing secretary Belinda Goodwin tweeting as @BelindaPfew for the session.

The @WeCops sessions follow a three-question format and usually feature some interesting discussions.

Dyfed Powys Police Federation branch secretary Roger Webb said he would encourage members interested in standing in the forthcoming elections to get involved if they can.

He said: "This is a great chance for members to ask any questions they might have about workplace reps, the training they receive and hopefully how to get involved themselves.

"I would urge any of our members who use Twitter to log on to this discussion and find out more about the elections and Fed reps." 

Elections for Fed reps are held every three years.

The next election process begins on Thursday (1 July) when nominations open for workplace representatives.
