Fed pushes for more people to register in ballot â€“ after latest figures show not enough have registered to carry a yes vote.
The Police Federation has made a last appeal for its members to vote in the ballot over whether officers should have industrial rights, after its latest figures show not enough have registered to carry a yes vote.
The Fedâ€™s latest figures show around 60,000 of its members have registered to vote â€“ but a majority of roughly 65,000 would need to vote yes for the staff association to have a â€œmandate to seek industrial rightsâ€, it said.
Fed Chairman Steve Williams said: â€œThis ballot provides an opportunity for officers to examine our current employment status and play a part in how the service will be shaped for generations to come.
â€œIt is therefore vital that members feel they are able to vote from an informed position.â€

You must register to vote by 4pm on February 26.
