  • Police officer pay

    Posted On 14 Jan 2015

    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.

  • Police Grant Settlement is a joke

    Posted On 18 Dec 2014

    Responding to the announcement yesterday of the Police Grant Settlement 2015/16, Steve White, Chairman of the Police Federation of England and Wales, said: “Having already endured budget cuts in excess of 20 per cent and the subsequent loss of over 16,000 police officers, today’s announcement is yet another blow. A further cut of almost 5 per cent in the next financial year will mean the public just won’t be getting the same level of service. Less money means more cuts to frontline services and more pressure on officers, set against growing demands for service.
