Ep.65 Your Misconduct Questions Answered and Your Rights Plus Pay and Conditions, Mental Health, and the Survey with Sergeant Phil Jones Police Federation National Conduct and Performance Lead

Phil is the National Conduct and Performance Lead for the Police Federation of England and Wales

In this episode, Phil talks us through the whole Misconduct and Gross Misconduct end to end processes.

We cover all sorts of topics and answer a load of questions from members of the Blue Light Leavers Facebook group, covering everything from, what is Misconduct and Gross Misconduct, we talk about Fed Reps and the different types of training they have.

We talk through the suspension criteria, we discuss the #IOPC and why investigations can take so long and a huge range of other topics, including the recent survey results, current Pol Fed priorities, retention and the impact of the mental heath and PTSD, along with the impact of a 20% cut in salaries in real terms under this Government, and the fact that some forces are having to open food banks to support officers.

Phil also raises the shocking statistic that on average, there are 110 officers assaulted EVERY single day! That's absolutely staggering!

I'm incredibly grateful to Phil for his time and expert knowledge, as he's exceptionally busy and he was incredibly open, honest and helpful.
