Independent Review

Front cover of final report - independent reviewSince 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. We accepted and have actioned all the recommendations outlined in the final report.

This element of our transformation is now complete, but 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.
