Notes:

a.  Entry point for an officer appointed in the rank of constable, unless either of subparagraphs (i) or (ii) applies:

(i) The chief officer of police may, after consultation with the local policing body, assign any officer to pay point 1 on the basis of local recruitment needs or the possession of a policing qualification or relevant experience other than those specified in subparagraph(ii) of this note; and

(ii)  The chief officer of police shall assign to pay point 1 any officer who:

1.  Possesses a Policing Qualification as defined by the chief officer after consultation with the local policing body;

2.  Was, prior to appointment, serving as a special constable who has been assessed and has achieved “Safe and Lawful” attainment to National Standards, or the equivalent as specified by the chief officer;

3.  Was, prior to appointment, serving as a police community support officer who has been signed off as competent to perform independent patrol and who has served a minimum of 18 months in the role.

b.  The salary paid to an officer at pay point 0 shall be between £20,169 and £23,355 as determined by the chief officer of police, after consultation with the local policing body, based on local recruitment needs or the possession of a policing qualification or relevant experience other than those specified in sub-paragraph (ii) of note (a) above.

c.  On completion of initial training, an officer who entered at pay point 0 will move to pay point 1.

d.  All officers will move to pay point 2 after 12 months at pay point 1 and progression will continue to be at a rate of one pay point per 12 months of service thereafter with the exception of pay point 4 which is subject to note (e) below.

e.  With effect from 1 January 2017, officers at pay point 3 will only progress to pay point 4 if they have at least 12 months’ reckonable service at pay point 3 and have successfully completed a Foundation Level ARC assessment, or re-assessment.

f. All officers move to this salary point on completion of two years’ service as a constable.

g.  Entry point for an officer appointed to the rank, unless the chief officer of police assigns the officer to a higher point. Incremental progression through the pay scale will be dependent upon an officer’s performance having been graded as either “satisfactory” or above in the relevant PDR. In the absence of a PDR, an officer’s performance will be assumed to have been “satisfactory”.
