Police Federation

National Board

The role of the National Board (NB) is to lead and run the Police Federation and to make policy decisions. It is the strategic driver of the organisation, formulating strategy and putting it to the National Council.

The NB is made up of 24 representatives from across our eight regions:

  • The National Chair - elected by members
  • 22 individuals (elected by the National Council)
  • The National Secretary - appointed by members of the Board

The new National Board officially came into effect from 1 September 2018 replacing the Interim National Board (INB) which existed during a period of organisational change from 2014.

There are eight Principal Officers within the National Board, of which the Chair and National Secretary are two. The remaining roles are National Treasurer, National Vice-Chair, Deputy National Secretary, Deputy Treasurer, Head of Civil Claims and Head of Criminal Claims.
