The Police Federation is the staff association for police officers from the rank of constable to chief inspector. Subscribing members receive support and advice from colleagues elected as workplace representatives and trained to offer guidance on Police Regulations and other issues affecting officers.
How much does it cost per month to be a member?
Officers from the Federated ranks can opt to become a subscribing member of the Federation entitling them to the full range of support and assistance in accordance with Federation rules. Membership costs just £21.58 per month. This is claimable against your income tax - the rebate makes the net cost of subscriptions UNDER £18/MONTH. This has not increased since 2011.
In the first year as a probationary constable, this subscription is discounted by 75 per cent and then 50 per cent in the second year. Full subscriptions are then paid from the third year.
