Police staff in 37 forces in England and Wales will receive a pay increase of 7 percent, matching that that was previously agreed for police officers as part of the Police Remuneration Review Body recommendation.
An agreement has been reached by the Police Staff Council, which 37 police forces are signed up to, after an offer was made and was accepted by each union following a ballot of their members.
The pay increase of 7 percent will apply to all pay points and will apply from 1 September 2023.
National Police Chiefs’ Council Lead for Workforce, Chief Constable Pam Kelly, said:
“I’m delighted that the pay award for staff has been agreed at 7 percent. Our police staff bring their expertise and skills to work alongside us to ensure we can deliver the best possible service to our communities. It is only right that the valuable contributions of police staff get the same recognition as our officers.”
The Police Staff Council (PSC) provides voluntary collective bargaining machinery for police staff in England and Wales. 37 police forces in England and Wales are signed up to the Police Staff Council. As of 2018, it covered approximately 56,388 police staff.
Those forces not covered by the PSC will have their own processes for negotiating staff pay.
