    PCDA starting salary

    I am currently undergoing pre employment checks to start as a student officer with South Yorkshire Police. They state on the website that the starting salary is either £18,450 or £24,177. They say it depends on qualifications and experience. How do they decide wether your qualifications and experience justify the higher rate?

    Owed leave

    May be leaving current force for pastures greener. Could anyone confirm that owed leave should be payed, along with MRDs? I have 190hrs and 6 MRDs owed, which by my calculations, at top whack is between £5-6k. Due to staffing, I will be unable to take any of this prior to leaving, as I’ll be giving 28days on the button.
  3. Hi, I've just received confirmation of my appointment and have a start date with Northumbria Police in early November, which obviously I'm buzzing about. The only downside is that starting on £24k I'll have taken a significant pay cut. So I'm wondering what the scope is for new recruits to take on overtime to offset the loss of earnings? Is it even possible, or will I have to get a certain number months under my belt before I can take on the overtime? Whilst I'm at it, am I right in thinking 9.5% is deducted for my pension? Any other deductions I'll need to know about? Just trying to get an idea as to how much I'll need to tighten the belt, thanks!

    Important choice to make..

    Hello, I have a question which I may not be able to get an answer for, however I previously wanted to join the police a few years back now and was not successful. I then went on to work in finance which I have been successful with, however I feel as if I am being drawn back to make an attempt to become a police officer. In my current job I earn a good salary and I have commitments like everyone else along with 2 children and I have become used to this income, however if I am successful in becoming a police officer I will be taking a cut on income, now to me the income really is not a driving force but it is extremely important again as I have commitments. My question is with the salary if successful on commencement of service is around £26k how long are you on salary this until you move onto the next range of around £28k. Is the the £26k just through initial training or is this for the first 2 years while you are on probation. To be honest if anyone could explain how the pay structure works it would be a great benefit to help making my decision. Thanks.
  6. Having read a few bits I just want to check is the pay really 22k for the first two years of joining? Just wondering as the website says it is but the CNC pay policy says it isn't. Anyone able to confirm?

    HI all, I'm currently going through the application process at the moment but I was wondering what sort of opportunity there is for overtime during probation and whether it comes with extra pay at all (and if it does, how does that work)?.

    Pay Breakdown

    Good evening all As a new officer I've taken a look into the scales and I'm fortunate to take home the S/E additional on-top of a starting £22k p/a My question is this; what does shift allowance equate to? As I understand it, this is added for working anti-social hours and is then complimented by any overtime we work. Thanks in advance Renz
  10. Hey guys, just a quick question relating to special's and filling out a P46. I've just found myself a new job and prior to this I was special for around 6 months (Still am and still planning to be - I also wasn't working before this). I went to sign my contract for my employer yesterday and they also asked me to fill out a P46. I filled this out to the best of my knowledge, however after going home and contemplating it for a day, feel that I might have filled it in wrong. It relates to the section about previous taxable work.. I had to choose one of the following.. A - This is my first job since last 6th April and I have not been receiving taxable job seeker's allowance, Employment & Support Allowance, taxable incapacity benefit, State or Occupational Pension. B - This is now my only job but since last 6 April i have had another job, or received taxable job seeker's Allowance, Employment & Support Allowance or taxable incapacity benefit. I do not receive a State Occupational Pension C - As well as my new job, I have another job or receive a State or Occupational Pension I chose A. I haven't had a "job" nor been receiving any "benefits" of any kind. But kind of think I should have chosen C. I do claim for my expenses while on duty, however I was under the impression that special constables do not pay tax on that, due to it being such a low amount hence why i didn't count it as a "job" So my question is, which one should i have chosen? A, B, or C, and is it too late to change it now? I only signed it yesterday? Any help much appreciated
  11. Hello all, I was looking at the changes due to Windor's report and eventually came across this: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/police-officer-remuneration-and-condition Scroll down a bit and at Recommendation 2, is mentions an allowance of an extra 10% pay when Officers work between 8PM and 6AM. Excuse if it's a silly question, but surely this additional pay is on top of the standard starting point of 22k? Potentially makes starting pay around 23.5k which is not bad tbh.
  12. See, we're not that hard done to after all..

    Paying Specials

    I am doing some research about the payment of Specials for a presentation I am giving in the near future. More info about that when the time is right But for now I need to get an understanding of what schemes are being proposed or trialled. I have ploughed through existing payment threads, from which I have found out the following: Police forces definitely running trial schemes Cumbria West Midlands Humberside Grampian Tayside Of these, most seem to be looking at a 180 hour-per-year commitment for which they pay an annual "bounty" of £1,000. Police forces which might be running schemes Surrey TVP South Wales Police And of these, the only info I have is that SWP might be running a scheme paying an annual bounty linked to length of service and capped at £2,500 per officer. Other information Looks like the PSNI (Police Service of Northern Ireland) are paying their reservists (NI equivalent of Special Constables) at the rate of about £9 per duty hour plus £41 per month. So... can you help me? I don't want this to be another discussion thread, I am just trying to gather correct information here. So if you have anything about the payment trials which you know to be correct then please answer in this thread so I can update my information. If you do want to discuss pros and cons of payment (who doesn't!) then this thread is an excellent place to go.
  14. 16 April 2015 The Federation is urging officers to take part in a survey launched this week on pay and morale issues to ensure their voices are heard.   The survey, put together in conjunction with the Police Superintendents’ Association, will help to track how officers feel on key issues as it follows a similar survey carried out last year.   Andy Fittes, general secretary of the Federation, said: “This Police Federation survey is your opportunity to tell us what you think about pay and conditions. Your views can make a difference.   The more people that complete this questionnaire the more strength it will give us to keep people at the highest levels of policing informed of your point of view. Please take the time to complete the survey so that I can be in a position to represent you as you would wish.”   He added that the survey would provide the Federation with the ‘critical evidence’ needed to make sure officers have a voice on key issues, such as pay, which will be discussed at the new Police Remuneration Review Body (PRRB) and also enable them to lobby on behalf of officers.   The last survey, which was carried out at the end of last year, polled the views of 32,606 serving officers, and found nearly 5,000 officers stated they were planning to leave the service in the next two years. The results also found that 71.2 per cent said they would not recommend to other people that they joined the police.   The latest survey will include new questions to make sure officers have a say on upcoming issues being discussed at the PRRB.   If you would like to take part then please click here.

  15. So, as someone who is completely de-motivated in their job and is looking to start a new career as a PC with BTP, I know I'm going to have to take a pay cut, but, from those with recent experience of being a new PC (London based) what is a realistic salary expectation with BTP? I know the starting salary still be around 22k, and then there are london allowances, but what about overtime etc? Is that a real prospect or a thing of the past?
  16. Is it possible to voluntarily relinquish the medical ill health benefits of the 1987 police pensions scheme and thus reduce contributions by 3.5%? Below is an extract from the PPS 1987 regulations. Therefore If I don't what the ill health benefits why should I or any officer have to pay for them,especially if the benefits at the end remain the same? Has anyone got any ideas? 3.2 Your contributions You pay contributions towards the cost of your pension benefits. These are set as a percentage of your ‘pensionable pay’, the current rate being 11% (less 1p a week). If you are ineligible for ill-health benefits you will pay contributions at a reduced rate, currently 7.5%. In PPS, members’ contributions meet about a third of the estimated cost of providing pensions and other benefits (the remaining cost being met by employers’ contributions and central government).

    A Payment Scheme

    The following payment model is based on schemes already running in UK forces: Based on the above and on the understanding that particpation would still be a matter of personal choice, would you agree to such a scheme being made available to all Special Constables in your force area?
