National Member Database

The first regular monthly e-bulletin has been sent to all officers we currently hold data for via the national member database. Some of the topics the email covered included: Adjusted Duties, Pensions and the upcoming Bravery Awards. If you haven't received a copy of the email and would like one, please contact: communications@polfed.org. There are four forces whose data has yet to be uploaded to the database, so those Federations have been asked to share the content through existing internal communication channels to ensure members are informed.

We are aware that officers in some forces have had issues accessing the links in the emails due to force IT security and firewalls. The Met is one of the forces which has reported a problem, among others. If your members are experiencing difficulties even when copying and pasting the links into a new browser please ask them to contact their force IT support.
