Pocket FedRep sets out to answer the questions police officers frequently ask.

As well as being a one stop source for answers the program also contains contact details for all police federations in addition to links to their websites, Facebook and Twitter accounts which will help for those times when the question for which you need an answer cannot be found.

Know who your local representative is and make use of them for definitive guidance in these circumstances. At a time when 'self-appointed experts' seem to have so much influence over policing knowing your rights and insisting on them will ensure that the best police service in the world does not continue to get taken for granted.
