Cambridge Police Federation is reminding members they can still make their views known in the 2021 Pay and Morale Survey which closes at the end of the month.

The findings will be used to support the Police Federation campaign for fairer pay and will also help the branch in dealings with chief officers.

Cambridgeshire branch chair Liz Groom said:  “There is still time for our members who have not yet done so to take part in this really important survey.

“It comes at a time when police officers are under increasing pressure and working harder than ever while at the same time being subjected to a pay freeze.

“This is bound to have had an impact on their morale and I think the findings of this survey will paint a stark picture of the feelings of the brave men and women on the frontline.

“I would urge all our members to take part in the survey before it closes and make their views known.

“The Police Federation will then use the data as part of its campaign pressing for reform to the pay system for police officers.”

National chair John Apter said the survey was the only consistent national survey that represented member attitudes on pay and conditions.

He said the evidence collected this year would play a vital part in supporting the ongoing campaign to seek fairer pay and remuneration for police officers across England and Wales.

The 2021 Pay and Morale Survey is being conducted by the Police Federation’s in-house research department, which plays a vital part in providing strategically important evidence to achieve better pay and conditions for members. The survey will close on 30 November.  

Members were sent a link to the survey by email, but contact the branch office if you need it.
