Northamptonshire Police Federation

What is the Police Federation?


The Police Federation of England was set up in 1919 by an Act of Parliament following police strikes over abysmal rates of pay and conditions of service following the First World War. Since 1919 Police officers have been prohibited from striking by statute, the most recent being the Police Act 1964.

The Police Federation is not a union but is charged with representing its members in all matters affecting welfare and efficiency.

Police officers are not employees, and therefore, do not have full rights under employment laws but do have their Conditions of Service expressed in Police Regulations and Determinations which have legal standing.
