POA Circulars

Resounding support for Lawful action

I write to you to convey my sincerest thanks for your unwavering support of the National Executive Committee, as demonstrated by the results from the indicative ballot.

Due to your support the roll out of PAVA is gathering pace and we are now witnessing prisons delivering SPEAR training and training in the use of rigid bar cuffs.

64% of branches participated in the ballot with a resounding 95% of POA members in favour of supporting the National Executive in taking lawful action to protect your health and safety.

The result is clear.

Your health and safety is non-negotiable and we will commit to using all lawful means to ensure your workplaces are safe.

Thank you for your continued support.

For and on behalf of the NEC.


National Chair
