Police Pay Dispute

Police Pay Dispute

Police pay has been in the news several times whilst I've been away.

The Times ran an interesting article titled police threat of mutiny if pay deal is abandoned, a paragraph of which I've copied below :

Vital police work such as firearms duties and undercover operations are voluntary, and a decision by police officers to withdraw goodwill would have a serious impact on counterterrorist and gang-busting investigations. Officers could also refuse to use equipment that does not meet rigid health and safety requirements, thereby curtailing operations.

The Police Federation have issued a press release asking police officers to write to their local MP in protest. They've also asked that as many police officers as possible, serving and retired, visit their site and fill out the protest poll which can be found by clicking Police Pay Protest.
