The PSAEW has a clear vision to provide superintendents in England and Wales with a national voice and leadership, support in adversity, and advice regarding conditions of service. The Association will harness and develop the skills, talents and opportunities of its membership, assisting them to maximise their full potential as leaders of the Police Service, and will strive to enable its members to contribute their knowledge and expertise to developing a police service that protects and serves our communities.
As the representative body of the senior operational leaders in policing, the PSAEW will provide a clear and authoritative voice of the Police Service.
The PSAEW endorses and upholds the standards and values applicable to all police officers (Statement of Mission and Values).
We recognise the skills, commitment and diversity of our membership and aim to provide an equal opportunity for all to contribute to the effective running of our organisation. We will exhibit a willingness to learn, change, engage and lead, putting the wider interests of the Police Service and the public we serve above those of ourselves.
We will maintain the integrity of our independence within the Police Service whilst recognising the legitimacy of the governance role of the Home Secretary, Police and Crime Commissioners and Chief Constables.
The PSAEW has 3 objectives in support of its vision:
- To negotiate the best possible conditions of service for members, and to provide support and advice to members regarding health & welfare or those ‘at risk’ in relation to conduct issues.
- To lead and develop the police service to improve standards of policing.
- To actively contribute to helping to shape future policing policy and practice at the national and strategic levels.
