Your bi-monthly magazine from the Police Federation of England and Wales.

8 December 2022


In this edition, we take a look back at the highlights and major events of 2022, whilst previewing what we think 2023 may have in store for us. Deputy Chief Constable Maggie Blyth discusses her vital role in the crackdown on violence against women and girls and her progress to date. Hear from National Chair Steve Hartshorn directly as he answers your questions and learn more about your entitlements when working public holidays.

Meet Detective Sergeant Devan Taylor as part of the new reps feature, DS Taylor has dedicated almost two decades to the service and talks about why he decided to become a Fed rep and what his role looks like.

Read up on PFEW's PSA screening initiative to help reduce lives lost to prostate cancer, following Prostate Cancer Awareness Month in November, and check out the latest charity initiatives. International Volunteer Day gave us the perfect opportunity to thank special constables for their service and recognise their dedication, kindness and compassion.

We’ve included some tips on financial wellbeing this holiday season, alongside best tips for burglary prevention and road safety. We know the holidays can be challenging for a number of reasons and as part of our wellbeing initiatives we have highlighted our new suicide prevention toolkit through lead Belinda Goodwin.

We’ve also highlighted help with baby loss and the support that is in place. We’ve also done a deep dive on the Conduct and Performance business area so you can learn about what they do for you. 

Finally, check out new initiatives in behavioural science and trauma informed practice and find out more about the College of Policing’s bursary scheme for those wanting to continue their education. 

We hope you enjoy this edition.
