      Leaked letter from Home Office is at odds with minister's public statement.

      Nearly 2,000 police officers voluntarily quit the service over the past 12 months – an increase of 31% over the past four years*.
      Numbers leaving each year are rising and now a new leavers’ survey by the Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW) provides greater insight into the reasons why. It showed:
      •    More than half (52.5%) cited morale as their reason for leaving
      •    43.8% said it was the impact of the job on their family/ personal life and 43.3% on their psychological health
      •    And a staggering 69.4% felt the police service had failed in its obligation to provide pay increases to maintain their standard of living
      In addition, 64.5% said they would never consider re-joining the police service after they had left.
      Recent Home Office figures show there are now only 122,404 officers keeping the public safe, the lowest number of police officers in England and Wales since 1996, with a further loss of 738 officers over the past 12 months.
      Ché Donald, PFEW Vice-Chair, said: “We clearly have a problem with the retention of police officers as the numbers leaving have risen for the fourth consecutive year. We have lost more than 21,300 officers since 2010 – that’s a drop of 15% and the numbers keep going down every year. It’s like Groundhog Day.”
      “Our leavers’ survey shows that pay, morale and the effects of the job on officers’ mental and physical health are all factors in their decision to leave.
      “The derisory so-called 2% pay rise awarded by the Government recently is the equivalent of around £2.50 a week – and comes on top of years of austerity. In real terms police officer pay has now decreased by around 18% since 2009/10. All we are asking is that officers are paid fairly for the dangerous job they do.”
      Mr Donald also cited events like the recent Trump visit which made it harder for police officers to spend time with their families.
      “Our last Demand, Capacity and Welfare survey showed the...

    • Hi everybody,
      I've heard a few different ways officers have responded to being called a grass, pig, etc.
      I normally just ignore them as they're just after a rise, however, I've been thinking there must be a better way of dealing with them, especially if the comment is made in front of the general public.
      Does anyone have any good responses they use, especially ones that are PSD friendly?
      Thank you,

About us

Police Community was originally founded in 2014 by two serving Police Officers.

In 2016 it was incorporated as a limited company called RAW Digital Media Limited and then purchased 3 other forums; Police Specials, UK Police Online and Police UK to form the largest policing discussion forum network in the UK.
