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 25 representatives from across our eight regions:
The new National Board officially came into effect from 1 June 2022 following a series of elections.
Each colleague serving on the National Board will hold a portfolio of areas of work they undertake on behalf of our membership. A non-exhaustive list of those work areas is included below their photographs on this page.
This work typically involves representing our membership with stakeholders including the National Police Chiefs’ Council, government, police and crime commissioners and the media. Each member of the National Board is also a regional representative, involved in representing both their regions as a whole and individual officers who may need their support.
