Police Regulations

SR CEATON-GOULD made this Freedom of Information request to Staffordshire Police

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Staffordshire Police,

I make this request under the authority of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, and in the interests of you as a public body being open and transparent at all times.

Specifically, I am referring to IOD Pensions.

Should a Police Officer be deemed permanently disabled under the Police Regulations from carrying out his or her duties as a Police Officer by the SMP, what part of the Police Regulations permits you to carry out an unlawful calculation regarding his or her injury awards, given that the decision of the SMP is final.

Should a Police Officer, so deemed unable to carry on his duties as a Constable, because of his disability retire on an annual salary of £37500, please explain to me how given a Permanent disablement figure of 75% by the SMP, he or she can be placed in the banding level 1?

Given the unlawful methods adopted by your HR department, assuming a permanency of disablement at 100% please illustrate how, given your PEAM system, that he or she can achieve a band 4 level of IOD pension.

Please inform me exactly how many Band 4 IOD pensioners are within Staffordshire Police, and the last time someone from your Force was allocated a band 4 IOD pension.

Yours faithfully,

SR CEATON-GOULD

Dear Staffordshire Police,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Staffordshire Police's handling of my FOI request 'Police Regulations'.

I make this further review in relation to my request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, in the knowledge that you as a public funded body should at all times be open and transparent when dealing with matter concerning the public purse.

Specifically:

Should a Police Officer be deemed permanently disabled under the Police Regulations from carrying out his or her duties as a Police Officer by the SMP, what part of the Police Regulations permits you to carry out an unlawful calculation regarding his or her injury awards, given that the decision of the SMP is final.

You state that Staffordshire Police are regulated by the 1976 Police Pensions Act and the Police Injury Benefit Regulations 2006.

Please provide me with the Act and Section that allows you to carry out an unlawful practice known as PEAM ( Police Earnings Assessment Matrix )

Under Schedule 3 of the Police Pensions Act 1976, an Officer with more than 5 years service, who is classified as 75% disabled by the SMP, is entitled to a minimum income guarantee equivalent to 85% of pensionable pay.

Therefore, again:

Should a Police Officer, so deemed unable to carry on his duties as a Constable, because of his disability retire on an annual salary of £37500, please explain to me how given a Permanent disablement figure of 75% by the SMP, he or she can be placed in the banding level 1?

Given the unlawful methods adopted by your HR department, assuming a permanency of disablement at 100% please illustrate how, given your PEAM system, that he or she can achieve a band 4 level of IOD pension.
