PFEW response to Home Secretary Theresa May’s keynote speech at conference

21 May 2014

Steve Williams, chair of the Police Federation, said: “We must not lose sight of the fact the Federation instigated the independent review itself and it is now down to the Police Federation to bring about the necessary reforms.

“In all honesty the comments made by the Home Secretary came as a total surprise and I was given no indication of what was going to be said. We have already indicated we are an organisation that is willing to change and it is for us to make the key decisions around reform over the next few days.”
