Police Covenant: consultation to end tomorrow

21 April 2020

Time is running out for officers to take part in an online consultation on Government plans to create a new Police Covenant, which will enshrine the welfare of officers, police staff and their families into law.

The covenant aims to enhance support for the police and their families, as well as officers’ physical protection, health and wellbeing.

Derbyshire Police Federation chair Tony Wetton is urging members to take part with a deadline of 11.45pm tomorrow (22 April) edging ever closer.

 “I think it is important that we all find the time to take part in this,” says Tony, “The covenant could make a huge difference for generations to come.

“It will make sure that officers get the support, protection and recognition they deserve for carrying out such challenging and often dangerous roles in our communities.

“The consultation survey is purposefully easy to use and gives everyone the opportunity to have their say in how our future is shaped.”

Take part in the consultation.
