Some facts about police pay and performance

The latest bulletin from the Reform think tank makes some interesting points about policy pay and performance which are worth considering in the heat and noise over the government’s reluctance to aware the review body’s recommended rise. For example it notes that over the last 12 years, police pay has risen at twice the rate of inflation and by more than the average of the public sector and the private sector pay increases.

It also puts falling crime rates in the context of how now 63 per cent of main family cars now have an alarm, compared to 23 per cent in 1992. So often performance indicators are seen in isolation rather than considering the external factors bearing on them.
