PSNI Officers To See 2% Pay Rise

A two percent consolidated pay increase has been awarded to the federated and superintending ranks of the PSNI, and has been backdated to 01 September 2018.

Emma Little-Pengelly, the DUP MP for south Belfast, welcomed the news which will also be applied to the Northern Ireland Transitional Allowance and dog handlers' allowance, in addition to any contractual entitlements to incremental progression.

The increased pay brings officers in Northern Ireland in line with those in England, Scotland and Wales.

In addition, Northern Ireland Prison Service staff received incremental progression in September 2018, following informal negotiations with prison service staff associations.

The South Belfast MP paid tribute to the "incredibly brave men and women who work tirelessly to keep the people of Northern Ireland can safe".

She continued: "Last month I reiterated the call from the Police Federation that there must be parity for all Police officers across the United Kingdom. A officer in the PSNI must be treated the same as an officer in Scotland or England. I am delighted that this has now been agreed."
