Police Remuneration Review Body
The Home Secretary has now written to the Police Remuneration Review Body (PRRB) to outline their remit as set by the government. The PRRB has replaced the Police Negotiating Board (PNB) and is now responsible for setting the terms and conditions for police officers' pay. You can read the full letter by clicking below.
The Home Office has yesterday (Tuesday 4 November) published the remit it has given the Police Remuneration Review Body (PRRB) when it comes to considering police pay and conditions in the future.
The remit, which can be read in full here, gives the PRRB guidance around what it should consider this first year when making its recommendations and the parameters within which it should fit.
The Home Secretary has asked:
- What adjustments should be made to pay and allowances for officers up to and including Chief Superintendents;
- Whether an additional amount (the London Lead) should continue to be paid to the inspecting ranks in London; and
- For observations on the level and scope of existing arrangements for differences of police officer pay and allowances at regional and local level (with a view to making recommendations in future years).
The Home Secretary has also made it clear that recommendations have to have regard to government policy on public sector pay for 2015/16 being an average of up to one per cent.
The PFEW has been working for some time with a number of other stakeholders including the Superintendents’ Association, ACPO and PCCs - as well as with the PRRB - to ensure that comprehensive evidence can be collated and presented in order to secure the best deal possible for our members. Now that the remit letter has been published this work will continue at pace.

The considerable pressure facing the service sees no sign of abating and that is why now more than ever it is important to stop and recognise the tremendous dedication of every police officer throughout the country. We do not do that enough and that is a sad indictment of the demands that have been brought to bear on the service as a result of such severe cuts to the policing budget.
