John Tully

I left my native Northumberland in 1986 when I joined the Metropolitan Police Force. Since then I have worked at Stoke Newington Division, the Diplomatic Protection Group, Barkingside Division, Redbridge Borough and the Force Training School.

I became a Police Federation Representative in 1995 and I now work as a full time Representative with responsibility for Student Officers.

I have the additional responsibility of being the Vice Chairman of the Metropolitan Police Federation (MPF).

The MPF is a staff association which has a statutory role to represent the (31,200) rank and file officers (Constable, Sergeant, Inspector and Chief Inspector ranks) of the Metropolitan Police.
