In total 45,000 officers, equivalent to 35% of all federated ranks, took part in the 2016 survey, the biggest response rate to date.

While 61% of officers are proud to be in the police, nearly 68% of officers do not feel valued.  Results this year also showed that over half of respondents (56%) said their own morale was low and cited how police as a whole are treated (84%), pay and benefits, including pensions, (71%), and work-life balance (58%) as key reasons for this.
