GMB POLICE STAFF NATIONAL COMMITTEE MEET SARAH JONES MP, SHADOW MINISTER FOR POLICING AND THE FIRE SERVICE 

GMB’s National Police Staff Committee were pleased to welcome Sarah Jones MP into her new role as Shadow Minister for Policing and the Fire Service today. 

Sarah was keen to understand the issues facing our Police Staff members, not just during Covid-19, but at all other times. Today, the GMB launched it’s Go Public campaign in the Police Service: ‘What our Police Need’.  5 Key Asks have been collated as a result of member responses to recent GMB Police Staff surveys. The asks are clear: 

  1. More FUNDING for pay and services 
  1. CELEBRATING the role of Police Staff 
  1. Challenge the CULTURE and address stress and mental health 
  1. Protect our members from VIOLENCE at work 
  1. Challenge PRIVATISATION and outsourcing 

You can access the full campaign booklet here:

A positive discussion was held, where your national committee raised all the issues that matter to you including the 2020 Pay Claim, austerity and post Covid fears, exclusion from the Government’s Death in Service Covid Life Assurance Scheme, PPE and pensions.

Your committee members will now be working to get Sarah the further information she requested so that we can ensure your voice is heard loud and clear. We all look forward to working together on common issues moving forwards.

COLLEGE OF POLICING – COVID-19 SURVEY

The College of Policing want to understand more and be able to respond to the demands being placed on Officers, Staff and Volunteers during Covid.

They have launched a short survey which is now open to anyone in policing and includes questions on wellbeing, guidance, PPE and engaging with the public. Your participation will help them work to ensure you and your colleagues are supported and have the equipment and information you need to stay safe and carry out your duties.

The College of Policing Covid-19 survey is now open for completion by all Police Staff:

FILL OUT THE SURVEY

The survey is open until the 31st May 2020.

Your response to the survey will be completely confidential. Your individual answers will also be anonymised. They will not be linked to any personal data you have previously provided the College, or shared outside the small group of College researchers who will analyse the data. Aggregated survey results will be shared with the National Police Coordination Centre, the National Police Chiefs’ Council, staff association and trade unions, and other organisations involved in the police response to COVID-19. These results will be presented in ways that do not allow you or anyone else to be identified.
