Justice Minister Naomi Long has confirmed the 2023-24 pay remit for police officers at Federated and Superintending ranks has been agreed.

The award is consistent with the recommendations of the independent police remuneration review body.

The Minister said: “I am pleased to announce approval for a pay award of over 7% for police officers, in recognition of the vital work that they do. Police Officers play a crucial role in our society in upholding justice and safeguarding our communities and for that I thank them.

“The financial challenges faced by all NICS Departments are well documented however public sector pay has been a priority for me and my Executive colleagues. This award acknowledges the significant public service that police officers deliver and we continue to work towards pay settlements for other staff groups.”
