Federation Focus: spring edition

The Spring edition of Federation Focus, the South Wales Police Federation magazine, is out now.

It’s packed with news and views from your Federation, including calls from branch chair Steve Treharne for a 17 per cent pay rise for members to reflect the cost of living crisis and cuts to wages over the past two decades.

Steve calls for an increase in the salaries of new starters and responds to the latest pay and morale survey. He also backs calls from the national Federation for a return to community policing.

There’s a warning about a growing recruitment and retention crisis in CID and praise for the work and contribution to policing of Specials.

Find out about new funding for dedicated mental health resources to relieve some of the pressure on officers.

There’s advice on pay and entitlements for members planning to take maternity leave and information about how to book a stay at one of the branch’s holiday chalets in west Wales.
