The Spring edition of News & Views, the Derbyshire Police Federation magazine, is out now.
Branch chair Tony Wetton adds his voice to the groundswell calling for a 17 per cent pay rise for police officers to reflect the cost of living crisis and cuts to wages over the past two decades.
And Tony responds to the latest pay and morale survey, which shows spirits in the Force are among the lowest in the country.
Branch secretary and treasurer Kirsty Bunn reflects on her career to mark International Women’s Day and the national Federation’s first female deputy chair, Tiff Lynch, shares her inspiring story of her battle with cancer.
Tiff and Tony join together to make the case for a return to community policing.
And we meet Special Sergeant Rob Jones as he discusses the satisfaction he gets combining a career outside policing with volunteering.
It’s all in the latest edition of News & Views, which you can read online.
