Since its creation nearly 100 years ago, the structure and operation of the Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW) had remained largely unaltered.
In 2012, we initiated an organisational change programme with the intention of improving the organisation’s overall performance, and our relationship with members, stakeholders, the public and political decision-makers.
Our launch pad was an independent review (IR) that we commissioned in 2014 from the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA), which outlined 36 recommendations for change and reform.
However, the review was just the beginning; a catalyst that has led us to grow in areas far beyond the scope of its recommendations, and enabling the organisation to look at how we can continue to evolve in order to best serve our members, now, and in the future.
The documents below outline our progress with regards to the 36 recommendations only - the scope of organisational reform we continue to undertake in order to improve lies far beyond the projects described, as the PFEW continues to strive to be the best it can be.
As of June 2018, 33 of the 36 recommendations put forward by the review panel had been completed (three are subject to elections being completed in the autumn of 2018) and three are progressing.
