The POA National Executive Committee have determined that we will set up a Security, Order, Counter Terrorism (SOCT) consultative committee. There have been a number of roles introduced under SOCT within HMPPS where POA members are sited outside of their home establishments, and they are carrying out new roles.

Expressions of interest are therefore invited from members who wish to be considered for membership of the POA SOCT Consultative Committee. Expressions of interest should be forwarded to by the 5th November 2021. Please include a brief description of your role and why you are interested.

Candidate’s expressions of interest will be considered by the NEC once Terms of Reference have been agreed for this Committee.

Thanking you in anticipation of your support and co-operation.

Yours sincerely

Steve Gillan
General Secretary
