Policy Analyst @ National Police Federation

Company: National Police Federation

Position: Policy Analyst

Location: Ottawa, ON Canada

Born out of a long-standing imbalance of power, and coupled with a political climate that resulted in fewer rights being afforded to RCMP members as the force expanded, the National Police Federation was founded to represent members of the RCMP and help move the organization forward in the decades to come. Some of the core areas that will be addressed and challenged during the negotiation process include: a shift to fair and competitive wages being paid to members, providing for proper staffing and training for new members, as well creating a more modern benefits package. The founders and executives of the NPF have long held the position that members of the RCMP deserve a viable, representative voice, similar to the ones afforded to other police organizations across Canada and around the world. In a historic vote that took place in late 2018 with the results being announced in July 2019, voting members of the RCMP elected, with an overwhelming majority, to certify the National Police Federation as their new bargaining agent. The National Police Federation has assembled a team of well-researched, knowledgeable, professional and credible members who are passionate about advancing all members’ rights and protecting all members’ interests and benefits. The NPF Board met in early January 2020 in Ottawa to further buildout the framework for how the Federation will function and sustain itself as it advances the interests of its members. The NPF’s Board is comprised of 17 elected leaders from across Canada, including the organization’s co-founder, Brian Sauvé who serves as the President. The NPF is the largest police association/union in Canada by far and second in North America only to the NYPD.
