Your Federation Updated Aug 2016

Your Federation

The structure of the PFEW is enshrined in the Police Federation Regulations 1969.
At the time of writing, changes to Regulations are pending. This section is therefore
likely to require updates in late 2016 – early 2017.

Your Joint Branch Board

Until 2016, Joint Branch Boards (JBB) have comprised three separate Branch
Boards – covering separately Constables (CBB), Sergeants (SBB) and Inspectors
and Chief Inspectors (IBB).

Your representative is elected by ballot from constituencies agreed with the chief
officer and elections take place triennially.

Your National Federation

At the Police Federation Conference every three years members are elected to the
three national rank committees: the Constables’ Central Committee, the Sergeants’
Central Committee and the Inspectors’ Central Committee. The next triennial
elections will take place in May 2017. However, it is anticipated that regulatory
changes will remove the rank committees, and establish a new structure before then.

The national representatives, collectively the Joint Central Committee (JCC),
comprises those elected to the Constables’ Central Committee, the Sergeants’
Central Committee and the Inspectors’ Central Committee. Following the May 2014
PFEW Conference, and the decision to implement the Independent Review of the
organisation, the rank committee structure for the JCC was voluntarily put in
abeyance, but the body as a whole still sits, albeit since the adoption of the
Independent Review in 2014, the JCC has voluntarily adopted the title Interim
National Board, while the JBB Chairs and Secretaries are collectively known as the
Interim National Council. It is anticipated that regulatory change will establish these
as the National Board and National Council.
