  • Officers’ workloads must be properly managed if the service is to rebuild public trust in crime statistics, the Police Federation has warned. An interim HM Inspectorate of Constabulary report published today (1 May) which looked into crime recording practices in 13 forces found that 20 per cent of crime could be going unrecorded. The report also found that some serious sexual offences were not recorded, that some offenders were inappropriately issued with out of court disposals and criticised the supervision of crime recording. Paul Ford, secretary of the Police Federation’s National Detectives’ Forum, said: “The Police Federation welcomes the findings of this interim HMIC report into crime statistics and shares the concerns contained within it. These are concerns which have been long flagged by the Police Federation as having the potential to damage public trust and confidence in the service.

  • 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.
