For the 2019 to 2020 pay round, the Home Secretary has asked the review body:

  • how to apply the pay award for 2019 to 2020 for police officers of all ranks, including chief officers, in the context of how it will support overarching National Police Chiefs’ Council’s proposals and timetable for a new pay structure

  • to review the NPCC’s design principles, framework and assumptions for pay reform; and to provide views on the extent to which the views of the staff associations have been considered in the development of the design

  • to review the NPCC’s detailed project plan and risk register and provide observations on the timescales for implementation, taking into account the requirement for formal consultation with the staff associations and the need to make legislative changes

  • to review the NPCC’s proposals for progression pay for police apprentices

  • to review proposals from the NPCC in relation to making payments to the superintendent ranks for undertaking each 24 hour on-call period
