The Government has announced salary increases for public sector workers.
Police in England and Wales will receive a consolidated pay award of £1,900, applied to all ranks from September 1, for the year 2022-23.
The Home Office says that is equivalent to a five per cent increase overall, and is targeted at those on the lowest pay who will see an uplift of up to 8.8 per cent.
