Annual Conference

Conference 2017 banner

Each year the Police Federation holds its annual conference in May, a pivotal event in the policing calendar where representatives from the 43 forces throughout England and Wales, as well as from Scotland, Northern Ireland and overseas, come together to share good practice and debate issues affecting policing.

2017 Annual Conference

This year’s annual conference was held on 16 and 17 May at the Birmingham International Convention Centre (ICC).

The theme of conference was Protecting The Protectors, linking in with our current campaign on police assaults. We used the hashtags #polfed17 and #ProtectTheProtectors on Twitter.
