Police Federation

Conduct & Performance

PFEW’s conduct and performance workstream is responsible for all matters relating to professional standards, misconduct, discipline, and unsatisfactory performance in relation to officers of the federated ranks, including liaising at a strategic level with key stakeholders. It meets five times per year and reports directly to the National Board.

Working with the Learning and Development Department at HQ, it develops training packages for new and existing PFEW conduct representatives, making sure they are updated and trained in the new regulations to expertly support members in their time of need.

It frequently liaises with various stakeholders including the Home Office and the National Police Chiefs’ Council to benefit members by ensuring the regulations are fit for purpose and processes are fair, transparent and evidence based.

Via our long-running Time Limits campaign, it is also continuing to lobby for police disciplinary investigations to be concluded within 12 months from the moment an allegation is made.

It is pressing for legislative change which would give legally qualified persons power to impose deadlines on investigations which have dragged on for a year, as the impact on police officers, complainants and public confidence is damaging.
