Christmas and New Year message from Leicestershire Police Federation Acting Chair Nadia Rana
We come to the end of another year, and I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of everybody at Leicestershire Police Federation to express our sincere thanks to you all for your hard work and dedication over 2023.
Our colleagues continue to deal with an ever-increasing demand throughout the year, and the festive season is no different.
Many of you will be sacrificing your Christmas to be out there policing across our region and keeping all of us safe, at the expense of time at home with your loved ones.
Again, I want to reiterate our gratitude to you for your tireless commitment to the job. I would also like to thank your families, their continued support and sacrifice is what enables our Police Officers to continuing doing their job during challenging times.
Christmas is a time of reflection so we will also be thinking about those that have died in service and their families left behind. Christmas can be a tough time for some, so please reach out to colleagues, supervisors or the Federation if you need support.
2024 looks set to continue to challenge policing - but with a General Election on the horizon, it also presents an opportunity to remind politicians, the public and the press about the reality of the job, the challenges we face and the great work that you do.
On behalf of Leicestershire Police Federation, I would like to wish all Leicestershire Police Officers and our Policing Family a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy 2024.
For those of you working over the Christmas and New Year period, look after each other and be safe.
