Statement from the Federation
In these times of unprecedented crisis, we are working with our Senior leaders to ensure officers get the clear guidance and the protections necessary so they are able to do their job.
Keeping the public safe is the number one priority, remembering that we are humans too and have our own concerns and personal worries about the situation.
The rapid development of the COVID -19 virus means advice is changing frequently to members, it can be confusing. Don't forget the Constabulary has set up an internal email if you are confused about the current advice. We are in regular contact with our service providers who are maintaining business as usual where possible. If you are a member of the Group Insurance scheme, don't forget you can access the services of GP24, which gives you access to a GP anytime you need, where ever you are. RedArc telephone service is also available giving professional, emotional and practical support. The Welfare support gives you access to a 24/7 support line staffed by trained professionals and a full time welfare support officer who will work alongside Federation representatives to support officers and their immediate families.
This is the most unique and challenging situation we have ever encountered. I want to reassure you that you have a voice through us. We are represented at daily Gold and Silver meetings, and you can feed those concerns directly to your local workplace reps or contact us directly at Lancashire@polfed.org.
If you have any personal worries, we will do what we can to help you, don't hesitate to get in touch.
