Calum Macleod

PFEW National Secretary

Calum has been a police officer for more than 25 years, the first six of which was spent in the service of Strathclyde Police before transferring to South Wales Police.

Most of Calum’s service has been in frontline operational roles, including response and community policing in Cardiff.

Calum became involved in the Police Federation in 2011 and stood for election as sergeants’ representative for Cardiff. He quickly became equality lead for the Joint Branch Board and then chair of the Sergeants’ Board. He has also held the position of regional chair for Wales.

Calum was general secretary and treasurer for the Sergeants’ Central Committee from May 2014 until his appointment as national vice chair from 2015-2018.

He led the organisation as national chair until the triennial elections in 2019 - a first in Federation history when members were given the opportunity to vote for local and national representatives.

Calum headed up the national criminal claims department before becoming the national secretary in 2022.
