Avon & Somerset Police Federation

About us

Avon & Somerset Police Federation is the staff association for police constables, sergeants and inspectors (including chief inspectors) at Avon & Somerset Police.

Nationally, the Police Federation of England and Wales is one of the largest staff associations in the UK representing almost 120,000 rank and file officers.

Established by the Police Act of 1919, the Police Federation was introduced to provide officers with a platform to bring their views on welfare and efficiency to the notice of the government and police authorities.

The Police Federation does for you what a trade union seeks to do for its members, but there are important differences. The Federation is controlled entirely by serving police officers and it is not affiliated or associated with any bodies outside the service and is completely independent of political parties.

We are the voice of the police service and campaign tirelessly on behalf of our members to ensure you are given a fair deal financially, legally and professionally.

  • We are not a trade union
  • We are locally accountable
  • We work tirelessly on your behalf
  • We are here to assist you
  • Membership and subscription are optional
