Metropolitan Police officers from a variety of backgrounds are invited to consider becoming Federation Reps, and they can find out more at the upcoming Election Cafe virtual events.
Fed Reps and self-organised groups are vital in supporting Federation members, and it’s important that they are as diverse as possible to reflect all officers. Being a Rep means your voice gets heard, you get superb training and you can make a real difference.
Ethnic minority and female officers are currently under-represented as Metropolitan Police Federation Reps, and they are being encouraged to join the team. The Reps@Work campaign is running a series of Election Cafds, with special sessions directly afterwards for officers to ask questions specifically about becoming a Met Fed Rep.
Interested officers can put their questions to Metropolitan Police Federation Chairman Ken Marsh and the rest of the team, which includes Paul Odle, Chair of the PFEW’s Black Asian Minority Ethnic and BAME Belief Group; Sam Sam Chugthai from the Disability Group and Belinda Goodwin, National Wellbeing Lead.
The Election Cafe events are an hour long, and there will be a further 30 minutes for Met-specific questions. They will be held on the following dates:
18 May – 10am
25 May – 2pm
1 June – 6pm
