The Chairman of the Police Federation Steve Williams has said the damning review of the body by the RSA, which revealed in-fighting, political posturing and divisions over cash reserves, offers a "roadmap of reform" which must be embraced.
Responding to the publishing of the report, he said:
This is an historic day for our organisation. The report makes uncomfortable reading and identifies that deep cultural change is needed.
It shows that the organisation is currently failing to perform its role effectively and efficiently is ineffective and uninfluential, has lost the confidence of its members, and is in need of urgent reform.
