We in the North Yorkshire Police Federation are here to assist in and to promote the welfare and efficiency of the force and our colleagues, and to assist in the ongoing development of North Yorkshire Police.
We aim to protect and support North Yorkshire's police officers and families each and every day.
The Police Federation is the staff association, which represents the vast majority (98.5%) of police officers in North Yorkshire. Our members are every police officer from the rank of Constable through to Chief Inspector.
The voice of the Police Federation is regularly heard both locally and nationally on TV, radio and in the press as we campaign on your behalf to ensure that you and fellow officers are given a fair deal financially, legally and professionally.
In North Yorkshire the Federation represents members at Senior Management Team, at force JNCC, force Health and Safety Co-ordinating Committee and on a number of Programme and Project Boards.
At a local level your representatives are involved in Area Management, JNCC and Health and Safety Committees as well as in consultation on local issues. Your local representatives look to keep you informed on current issues and act as an initial point of contact for your general concerns. They can support you in the early stages of most managerial processes:
Under the Federation Fund Rules we can provide the following (this list is not exhaustive):

What does the Federation cost me?
The weekly subscription to the Voluntary Fund is £4.98 per week for members of the Federated Ranks from Constable to Chief Inspector. The monthly deduction is £21.58 per calendar month.
If you think that is costly, then think again. How costly would it be to have professional and legal advice at your fingertips when you need them, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year? What if a prisoner dies accidentally while in your custody? What if you have to use force in an arrest? What if a newspaper prints defamatory comments about you or suppose a suspect makes a false allegation?
Members are advised that subscriptions to voluntary funds are tax deductable.
