PSA publishes annual report for 2020/21

The Police Superintendents’ Association has published its Annual Report for 2020/21.
The report details how the association has worked towards its strategic priorities and outlines priorities for the year ahead.
In his foreword, President Paul Griffiths says:
“What has occurred over the past year is nothing short of extraordinary and our role as an association has been crucial in supporting our members who have led the policing response to this national emergency, and the wider Service, which has successfully implemented wholesale change to the way it operates as it has navigated an entirely new demand.
 “This year’s annual report is therefore heavily influenced by our own ‘Covid response’ as we have served as critical friends and influencers in the government’s formation of entirely new laws and associated guidance for police officers.
 “The unrelenting demand this has resulted in for members, our Service’s most senior leaders, has been a core concern and has been at the centre of our wellbeing drive.
 “Amidst the global impact of coronavirus, our Service has been further tested with regards to legitimacy following the debate that arose from the death of George Floyd in America and the resulting Black Lives Matter movement. The need to make real, visible change to the diversity within our workforce and to the legitimacy of our services when it comes to race has never been more stark.
 “With a long-standing commitment to valuing difference, which has been a priority area of focus for the association over the last year, I’m pleased that we have made progress through the insight and experience of our members.”
