Pay Scales

See botttom of page for latest pay scales.

Please be aware of the Police Negotiating Board Decision which states: Pay points 6, 7, and 9 should be removed from the existing constables’ pay scale in April 2014, 2015 and 2016 respectively. This will allow constables to move to the maximum more quickly and ensure that the current and new pay scales merge in 2016.  Pay point zero will also be removed in 2014 for sergeants. PNB has now published advisory guidance, revised March 14 (requires formal approval by the Home Sec). For details on how this process will take place it is important that you read this PNB Circular (Click HERE) or read the doc opposite. It explains how the transition will take place and which officers it affects. 

An additional guide is available HERE 

It was also decided that pay progression for officers in the Federated ranks should be subject to a satisfactory box marking in the annual appraisal. Those officers who receive a box marking of "satisfactory contribution’ or above should advance by one pay increment; those who receive an "unsatisfactory contribution ‘ box marking should remain on the same pay point for a further year. There will be a presumption that you are competent unless stated otherwise. This will protect officers from potential failings by your line manager to complete the PDR.This should be introduced for sergeants, inspectors and chief inspectors in 2014/15 and for constables in 2015/16.

Constables will now need to complete the ARC process in order to attain paypoint 4. Details of this available HERE
