POA Circulars

98 | 11.12.2015


On the 9th December at the NEC meeting it was determined that all POA members who have been involved in the pilot of the above should engage in the forthcoming survey which NOMS has commissioned. It is vital that members complete the survey and set out all of the positives and negatives of this equipment.

It has been agreed that the NEC will have access to the returns as part of the Violence Reduction Strategy Committee.

During the debate on this issue the ill-informed and unhelpful comments of the Secretary of State for Justice were fully considered, however it was determined that the outcomes of the pilot were more relevant to the security and safety of POA members.

Please draw the contents of this circular to your members attention if your branch is part of the pilot.

Thanking you in anticipation of your support.

Yours Sincerely


General Secretary
