Police Pension Judgement and Review

The Employment Tribunal on judges’ pensions has been reported as a victory. But who wins? Andy Fittes, PFEW General Secretary, said today: “The ET ruling was on a narrow part of pension legislation, and ruled against a provision that unions across the public sector had fought for. The PFEW believes that the success of this challenge could have unintended consequences to the detriment of public sector workers.” Read More

Public Show Support for Officers Carrying Taser

The public have shown their support for police officers having access to Taser, dispelling the myth that it erodes community policing or the British model of policing by consent. A survey, commissioned by the Police Federation of England and Wales, has shown 71% of respondents consider it acceptable for police officers to carry Taser when on patrol.
Four out of five surveyed said it would make no difference to their decision, or they would be more likely, to approach an officer for assistance if they were carrying a Taser. In addition, 89% said forces should be allowed to train and equip officers if the use of Taser is automatically recorded by Body Worn Video.
Steve White, Chair of the Police Federation of England and Wales, said: “We know officers support the use of Taser and Body Worn Video, and now we have the evidence that shows the public do as well.” Read More

Our pension page

The Legal Challenge - an update by Steve Trigg, Chair, SWPF: There can be few officers affected by the changes to the CARE Pension scheme who have not been concerned that they have been subject to this change without prior consultation and, for most, contrary to their wishes.

The Police Federation of England and Wales has published an FAQ document and circulated their view that following legal advice there is no credible avenue to pursue a legal challenge against those changes.

As a result, a group of officers from GMP has organised their own challenge in conjunction with a London based law firm, Leigh Day.

On Monday 12th October, 2015 I travelled to London for a presentation from their QC, Keith Bryant, and the following is a summary of that meeting.

Please click to read more.....

This is where you can download the information on the 2015 CARE Pension Scheme including the full Regulations relating to its implementation, the member guide on its structure and the PFEW FAQ on how it will be implemented and affect you. There are also other documents which answer some of your questions including a FAQ on the issue of mis-selling and other documents originally released by the Home Office back in 2012.
