Leicestershire  Police Federation

Welfare Van

Federation Welfare Van

Leicestershire Police Federation were the first Branch in the country to invest in a welfare van. The van has a comfortable heated seating area, hot drink flasks, microwave, sinks and toilet facilities. It is available to support officers through scene preservations, training in remote areas and for Federation engagement days when we can travel to see you for pop up surgeries. Our policy document, checklist and FAQ guide can be found below.

Please read the Policy document if you are considering contacting us to ask for a deployment. It contains the details of how to request the van and examples of when it should be considered and when we may decline a request.


Should you wish to use the van, during office hours call 0116 218 3131. Out of hours please try and locate an on duty Rep, and if none are available a Sgt or Inspector should make contact with us via the On-Call facility.
