This past year has been particularly challenging for policing. The service has found itself the subject of high profile reporting and scrutiny, much of it uncomfortable, in relation to both current activity and issues from its history going back a generation or more. The continuing reduction in spending on policing has meant forces are having to make difficult decisions in every area of service. While the crime statistics tell a positive story, the demand on the service continues to change and develop. The landscape that officers serve within has continued to change as well, including the introduction of the first ever direct entrants at Superintendent rank.
The President, Irene Curtis said:
“This backdrop has placed a considerable demand on the Association and I believe we have responded to that demand on every occasion. We have provided extensive professional support to our membership whilst remaining a trusted and valued voice that influences and shapes at many levels in policing.”
