Responded:1 July 2022
The Police Federation of England and Wales confirm there is no official PFEW endorsement of the card. The PFEW National Treasurer, Simon Kempton, also the designated PFEW National Drug Lead, provided a statement based on his view of the principles after being invited to assist with considerations on the likely impact to active policing. As you will see from publicly available press releases, they also consulted with others such as the NPCC, College of Policing and Parliament.
As no endorsement has been made there are no petitions or requests for endorsement that can be provided.
