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.
This year's conference took place on 22 and 23 May at the Birmingham International Convention Centre (ICC).
