Steve Hartshorn

PFEW National Chair

Steve joined the Metropolitan Police in 1995 and spent the first 10 years on a 24/7 emergency response and investigation team in the east of the MPS. In 2005 he moved onto the Specialist Firearms Command and spent the next 13 years on the Armed Response section of the unit. He became a Federation rep in 2008 because he wanted to help colleagues that were going through a difficult time.

In 2018 he was voted in as a National Board member for the Metropolitan Police Federation and was responsible for various workstreams that help protect and support members, including leading on firearms and Taser matters.

Steve is determined to be an integral working part of the National Council and National Board that strives to hold the Government, IOPC, College of Policing and other stakeholders to account.

His priorities are ensuring PFEW has greater influence and negotiation powers when it comes to pay and pension discussions with the Government and pressing for a long-term funding strategy to allow officers to live a better life both personally and professionally.
