Support the National Police Memorial Day

Dear colleague,

As you know, NPMD is a charitable organisation who relies solely on donations in order to provide the day of national remembrance many of you attend to pay our respects to our fallen colleagues and their families.

As highlighted at conference, Andy Fittes and I are running the Bristol 10k in 2 weeks time to raise money for this worthy cause.

Please follow the link below and consider a donation either personally or from your boards. Please also feel free to forward the link to your members and senior officers, to whom I will also be writing asking for support.

Many thanks in advance,

Voluntary Redundancy for Police Officers

As a result of the changes introduced following the review conducted by Tom Winsor, voluntary redundancy for police officers has been included in the tools available for use by Chief Officers at their discretion.

It is for chief officers and Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) to decide whether to run a voluntary exit scheme in their force and to determine, within the terms outlined below, what criteria for eligibility to apply are appropriate. If a scheme is run, it is for those officers who fall within the criteria of those eligible to apply to decide whether the terms of the offer are right for them. Only if both sides agree to the terms and are satisfied that they are suitable should the exit proceed.

The Chief Constable of Gwent Police has announced that he is considering running a voluntary exit scheme.

The Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) has produced guidance for forces considering running a voluntary exit scheme and you can view more information on this scheme here -

This is a very complex and hugely important decision to make. It is personal to you and you are strongly advised to seek independent financial advice before making any decision which coud affect your future financial situation.

Changes to the Philip Williams Bupa Scheme

The annual pricing review for the PW Bupa Healthcare Scheme has now been completed. The good news is that significant growth in scheme numbers during the past 12 months has enabled us to negotiate a good deal with Bupa, which has kept monthly subscription increases to an absolute minimum and below the level of medical inflation, whilst still providing the most comprehensive and affordable healthcare product in the Police market.

As NHS funding is under pressure, and there are increasing demands on the service, continued membership of this scheme ensures prompt access to diagnosis and treatment as this could impact future job security and lifestyle.
