Twenty four officers have now been trained to act as Federation Support Officers (FSOs).
They will be able to help inform Derbyshire Police Federation members on Police Regulations and local policies and procedures.
“Being a Federation Support Officer is about having the knowledge to correctly support and influence others when it comes to dealing with Federation and general welfare matters,” explains Derbyshire Police Federation secretary Kirsty Bunn.
“It is important to stress that the support officers are not elected posts, so there are no abstractions from the workplace except for the initial training.”
At the start of the year, Federation members were asked to volunteer to become FSOs, resulting in the 24 officers receiving the training.
One further day’s training is to be held on Wednesday 15 May at Coney Green Business Centre. If you would like to be considered for the course or want to know more about the role itself, please email Kirsty or call 01246 252329 or 07891 925593.
