Rank and file police officers from across England and Wales are being invited to vote for their National Federation Chair between 12-30 July.

Two candidates have put themselves forward to be National Chair of the Police Federation of England and Wales: John Apter and Phill Matthews. Find out more about them and read their election statements on our ‘National Chair candidates’ page.

Information on how to vote is currently being sent directly to our members’ PNN email addresses - all Police Federation members (officers up to and including the rank of Chief Inspector), subscribing or non-subscribing, are eligible to vote.

The National Chair plays a key role in the National Federation, ensuring the welfare and interests of members are at the heart of the services we provide, acting as principal spokesperson, and representing the organisation on a national level - read the role description in full.

On election, the National Chair automatically becomes part of the National Board, which runs and leads the organisation - find out more about the structure of the Police Federation

The closing date for voting is 11.59pm on Monday 30 July. The individual elected to the role will take up the post from 1 August, taking over from current National Chair Calum Macleod, who announced his decision not to stand for re-election earlier this month.
