Cuts Watch #204: Police Pay

14 Aug 2010, by in Cuts Watch

The Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) has called for massive reductions in police pay to achieve the cuts demanded by the government. In a move that proves that no-one is safe from the monstering facing any group of public sector workers whose pay and conditions are being cut, the call was accompanied by pay figures showing that a tiny group of police officers had earned £50,000 in overtime during the previous year.

Speaking on behalf of ACPO, Tim Hollis, the Chief Constable of Humberside, called for the ‘modernisation’ of police pay. A ‘leaked’ copy of the ACPO submission (seen by every national newspaper) called for:

  • Reductions in overtime for working on a public holiday,
  • Reductions in (or scrapping) compensation for working on a rest day, and
  • Abolition of other allowances.
