Corporal Arleen McBean
Police Federation General Secretary
Corporal Arleen McBean presents with the tenacity of our heroine, Nanny of the Maroons. The First and only female Chairman of the Police Federation, she has over the years proven that true representation comes through longevity, understanding the problems of members’ welfare, and a commitment to the task even in the face of adversities. No stranger to adversities, she is a true beacon for the down trodden, and oppressed.
Corporal McBean is not judgmental and is a champion of the quote” innocent until proven guilty.” She ensures that members in custody see her at least once weekly, as her representation transcends home and abroad. Corporal McBean has an enviable track record, giving rise to what we now call the ‘hair style’ project. We are celebrating the wearing of braids, knob earrings and pastel colour nail polish. No one thought this was possible and shows that Corporal McBean is a phenomenal representative.
Experience & Activities
During the period she commenced two major research projects gained from the insights by the other directors and members. She has researched matters affecting members that can be corrected through training. Her duties entailed ensuring that important documents concerning the Police Federation are properly stored, ensure that important information regarding the Police Federation is documented and ensuring that Court rulings are properly archived for the future. Corporal Arleen McBean lives by the motto, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” She is seeking re-election to the Central Committee.
