Regulation 24(2) Police Regulations 2003

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Sir or Madam,

My enquiry relates to your force policy for the situation where an officer has been “temporarily promoted” to a higher rank (i.e. is not “acting-up”, thereby receiving a “temporary salary” as provided for in Annex I to Regulation 27 of the Police Regulations 2003), has in due course reverted to his or her substantive rank, and has subsequently been promoted again (whether substantively or again only temporarily).

My request is for:

(a) any force policy or procedure document from which it would be determined whether such an officer’s salary would take account of that previous period in the higher rank – in accordance with Reg.24(2) – or would alternatively be re-started back at the lowest salary scale point for the higher rank, at the commencement of each and every period of service in that higher rank; and...

(b) any force policy or procedure document that reported, considered or reviewed the implications of the decision in Gill v Chief Constable of Merseyside [Liverpool County Court, judgement given on 28 August 2007], in which unequivocal judgement was given against Merseyside Police by HH Judge Platts because the latter procedure (as referred to above) is unlawful and does not comply with Regulation 24(2).

Yours faithfully,

William Old

Dear Freedom Of Information,

The "Temporary Promotions Policy" does not address the point in issue (whether all periods of service in the higher rank are aggregated and counted for pay purposes) but the second document "Inputting Officers in Temp Promotion" confirms that Regulation 24(2) is indeed now properly complied with by the Norfolk Constabulary, and I thank you for your comprehensive and helpful response.

Yours sincerely,

William Old
