    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
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  8. 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.

  9. 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?
