Policing Minister Brandon Lewis

Steve White, Chair of the Police Federation of England and Wales, has today said there is 'much to talk about' with the new minister, as he congratulated him on  his appointment.

Mr White said: "The Federation is looking forward to working together with Mr Lewis on all aspects of policing. There is a great deal to talk about, including police reform and, particularly, how our 122,000 members are feeling in times of increased demand and depleting resources.  The police‚Äôs duty is the safety of the public but we must make sure that they have the tools, confidence and resources to do the job required so that we can continue to deliver the service that the public expect from us. I look forward to meeting with Mr Lewis as soon as possible and discussing these issues in more detail."
