This year we are proud to celebrate 100 years since the Federation was formed, marking a whole century of representing rank and file officers.
We have come a long way since the Federation was established by an Act of Parliament in 1919, and to mark this achievement we will be sharing stories from Federation officers and reps, and serving and ex-police officers on these pages.
These stories will look at how the organisation has helped members during key events in police history – locally and nationally, covering issues like mutual aid, equality and how policing has changed.
This is a significant year for the Federation and a milestone in our history.
Here’s to the next 100 years.
If you would like to share your story please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
