Officers deployed on a mutual aid basis for this weeks DDAY75 event which involves heads of state attending from across the world as well as Her Majesty the Queen will receive a fairer deal thanks to the Federation.
Your chairman, Alex Charge and Secretary Garry Smith have been working tirelessly to secure pay and conditions and ensure that the appropriate support is in place for visiting officers as well as our own.
As such officers will benefit from:
• An allowance of £50 for each night away
• Overnight accommodation in a hotel
• Properly regulated mealtimes
• Access to water at all times
• Access to charging points where possible
• Welfare vans
Federation reps will also be present at briefing locations and a hotline will be provided around-the-clock for members to call if they experience difficulties regarding welfare, food or accommodation, although they should contact their own supervisor in the first instance.
The numbers are 07901 102513 and 02380 478919.
PFEW Operational Policing lead Simon Kempton said: “We are particularly grateful to Hampshire Federation’s chair Alex Charge and secretary Garry Smith who worked really hard on the issues with the Gold commander and logistics teams. Last year conditions were clearly unacceptable for many of the near 10,000 officers deployed, many of whom were far away from their homes and families after rest days and annual leave were cancelled.”
Measures may be subject to change due to operational needs, with the exception of the £50 overnight allowance which will be paid regardless. If officers work a day of annual leave they may be entitled to compensation, including overtime payment and a day back.
