Thank you to everyone that voted in the recent local federation elections. We are pleased to announce we have three new federation representatives that are available to all members if the need arises. We would like to welcome PC Annalea Kift stationed in Ebbw Vale, PS Steve Thorpe stationed in Pill and PS Joe Smith stationed in Newport Central Custody to our Branch Council.
Additionally I wanted to update everyone that I will be retiring shortly from the service and we held a recent election where Nicky Ryan was duly elected as the next Branch Secretary. I will retire on 14th August.
I have been the Branch Secretary for over 7 years and have been committed throughout this period to make sure our members are represented in the best way that was possible. To those I have represented along the way I wish you all the very best for your career ahead and I’m sure the next Secretary, Nicky Ryan, will also have your best interests at heart.
I wish all our members and everyone associated with Gwent Police every success and happiness and I genuinely hope your careers ahead are as fulfilled as mine has been.
Take care, it’s been a blast.
Gwent Police Federation Council Secretary’
