In the face of the one per cent public sector pay limit set by the Treasury, the Police Federation is asking for a pay increase of 2.8 per cent for all police officers. In a joint submission to the Police Remuneration Review Body (PRRB), with the Police Superintendents’ Association of England and Wales, the Police Federation has asked for an annual uplift in line with Retail Price Index (RPI) inflation.
In the face of the 1% public sector pay limit set by the Treasury, the Police Federation is asking for a pay increase of 2.8% for all police officers. In its second submission to the Police Remuneration Review Body (PRRB), a joint submission with the Police Superintendents’ Association of England and Wales, the Police Federation has asked for an annual uplift in line with the average private sector increase.
Police officer pay should increase in the next financial year by the maximum 1% limit set by the government, the Police Federation of England and Wales has urged. Home Secretary Theresa May asked the bodies that make up the Police Remuneration Review Body – which has replaced the Police Negotiating Board – to make recommendations on pay increases for 2015/16; the retention of the London Lead; and on different pay at regional and local level. We were also asked for our thoughts about the PRRB remit for the next five years.
The Home Office has yesterday (Tuesday 4 November) published the remit it has given the Police Remuneration Review Body (PRRB) when it comes to considering police pay and conditions in the future.
The Official Side has today at PNB tabled an offer of a one percent pay increase from 1 September this year. This increase is for all pay points and all Ranks and has been accepted by staff side. This increase also applies to those allowances normally subject to annual increase. The increase does not include CRTP. This is in keeping with the continued public sector pay restraint. We are pleased that unlike other public sector workers those receiving increment increases will also benefit from this one percent increase.

You will be aware that in today’s statement on the 2013 Spending Round, the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced that Government Departments would put in place plans to end automatic pay progression.
The Home Office budget will be cut by 6% in 2015/16 - with the police budget slashed by "less than that", the Chancellor announced today. West Midlands PCC Bob Jones said, "I am extremely disappointed by today's announcement. The further 6% cut to Home Office funding in 2015-16, if passed on in full to policing, means a further £27 million cut to West Midlands Police, in addition to the £126 million we've lost already. This could take the total cut to about £153 million - or over a fifth of the budget - in just five years."
At today's PNB meeting an offer to increase Police officers pay by one percent with effect from 1 September 2013 was accepted.
