Have your say on pay and morale

Dyfed Powys Police Federation chair Roger Webb is urging all members to take part in the annual pay and morale survey.

The findings of the survey, which is carried out by the Police Federation of England and Wales, are used as evidence in its annual submission to the Police Remuneration Review Body (PRRB) which advises the Government on officer pay.

 “I would like to encourage all members to take part in this survey,” says Roger, “The more officers who respond, the stronger the evidence we can provide to PRRB.

 “Locally, we also use the results of the survey when putting forward officers’ views to the chief officers and senior managers.

“I cannot stress enough how important it is for members to fill out this survey, share their views and give us the evidence we need when representing them.”

 Last year’s survey revealed:


  • 71 per cent of respondents from Dyfed Powys were dissatisfied with their overall remuneration, including pay and allowances
  • 65 per cent felt they were worse off financially than they were five years ago
  • 43 per cent reported worrying about the state of their finances every day or almost every day
  • 12 per cent reported never or almost never having enough money to cover all their essentials.
  • Almost half said their morale was low, and
  • 64 per cent said they would not recommend joining the police to others.

 The survey has been issued via the Federation’s National Member Database and will close at midnight on Friday 11 September.
