Elections

Our elections give members the opportunity to vote for the colleagues they want to represent them locally and nationally. Police Federation representatives support and advise members in matters such as conduct, pay, allowances, terms and conditions, equality, professional development and operational policing issues.

We hold elections for Fed reps every three years. The 2018 national elections began in February and will take approximately seven months to complete. Find out more about the election process and schedule.

Where are we in the current election cycle?

Elections for the National Board take place through August - members of the National Council, and incumbent Interim National Board members are invited to stand. Candidates must stand to be a member of the National Board for the region of which their Branch is a part. Members of the National Council, and incumbent Interim National Board members are then invited to vote.

The National Chair, another Principal Officer role, has already been elected my members. The final Principal Officer role, National General Secretary, will be appointed via a selection process in September.
