Hertfordshire Police Federation

Pay and morale: have your say in Federation survey

18 November 2021

Hertfordshire Police Federation members who have yet to take part in the 2021 Pay and Morale Survey are being urged to do so before the 30 November deadline.

The survey aims to gain the views from officers on the frontline and the results will be used to support the Police Federation campaign for fairer pay for officers.

Hertfordshire branch chair Geoff Bardell said: “There is still plenty of time for our members to make their opinions known in this year’s Federation Pay and Morale Survey.

“We hear from our members that morale across policing has suffered in recent years as numbers have fallen and expectations have grown and none of this has been helped by the zero per cent pay rise.

“To a certain extent pay and morale go hand in hand. No one joins the police to become rich but it is only fair that officers are properly rewarded for the work they do, particularly at times of national crisis such as the pandemic.

“This survey is expected to highlight how let down our members were left feeling by this pay freeze this year and we can only hope its findings are taken on board by ministers as policing tries to re-establish its relationship with the Government.

“I would strongly urge all our members to take part in the survey and have their say.”

The 2021 Pay and Morale Survey is being conducted by the Police Federation’s in-house research department, which plays a vital part in providing strategically important evidence to achieve better pay and conditions for members. The survey will close on 30 November.  

A link to the survey was sent to officers at the start of this month, but please contact the office if you need it.
