Our full time reps

Chairman - Peter Singleton

I joined Merseyside police in 1989 and my service was all operational shift work until Sept 2012 when taking over as chairman of Merseyside Federation

Promoted to Sgt 2006. Joined the Fed as Sgts Rep 2007, Chair 2012. Had been H&S lead, SBB Sec and SBB Chair.

Divorced (Twice) 4 kids and hold a current Private Pilots Licence. I fly from Liverpool when I can afford it - which isn't as often as I'd like.

Handicap - supports TRFC and on occasion has been known to swear my way around a golf course.


Secretary - Dave Lowe

I have 25 years service in Merseyside Police. Majority of service has been in uniform.

Started out as a local area rep in 2001 following the sad death of the previous rep Jimmy Forrest who was related to a family member.

Represented officers in all aspects of police regulations however took a keen interest in Misconduct.

In November 2012 I became the full time Misconduct Leader following the retirement of my predecessor and have since that time represented officers of all ranks in all aspects of Misconduct both in Merseyside many other parts of the country and the Isle of Man.

I was elected as Secretary replacing Tony Barton. Tony has been a great friend and mentor and it's a privilege to take over from Tony and continue to steer and lead Merseyside Police Federation forwards through the difficult times we still face ahead.


Deputy Secretary - Dave Sim

I have 26yrs service, all completed in a variety of uniform roles in Liverpool.

I became a Fed. Rep. in 2009, dealing with Conduct related incidents, sickness matters and grievances across the force area. I was elected to the Deputy Secretary Role at Green Lane in August 2015.

Where time allows, I enjoy most sports, whether participating or watching.


Support and Welfare Rep - Rob Venables

Joined the Merseyside Police in 1988 and has worked in a variety of predominantly uniform roles across the Force area. He was promoted to Sergeant in 2003 and was latterly a custody sergeant in Wavertree Road and Headquarters fed rep.

He is passionate about equality issues and is the Merseyside Police Federation Equality lead.

His primary interests outside of work are his family, his greyhounds (rescued) and listening to music (the more obscure the better)!
