The Police Superintendents’ Association has published its Annual Report and Impact Report for 2021/22.
The reports outline how the association has worked towards its strategic priorities and outlines its focus for the next three years.
With a clear focus on advocating for members and influencing policy development through relationships with senior policing stakeholders, the report reflects the association’s efforts to instigate positive change across key policing areas.
In his annual report foreword, President Paul Fotheringham says:
“Demand on policing continues to change, we’re progressing the largest ever recruitment drive into policing and we’re at the centre of a police legitimacy debate which has rocked the foundations of our relationship with the public.
“The impact of this on our members and the wider service should not be underestimated and I continue to be humbled by the daily examples of sacrifice and dedication we see at every rank within policing, despite operating in the most unique and complex environment we have known.
“Should we have a line in about advocating and influencing for members and developing policing by regularly engaging with with key stakeholders including government (HS etc) and senior policing leaders?
“We continue to place the wellbeing of our members at the core of our work, and I am pleased that we have been able to progress with our initiatives to provide tangible support to superintendents.
“We have also moved at pace to lead the way in addressing the diversity and inclusion challenges that continue to challenge our service, and have championed work to value difference at every rank in policing. I would like to thank our National Executive Committee, our national officers and our staff team for their continued hard work and professionalism that has enabled these achievements and sustained influence.”
