Royal Commission into Police Pay and Pensions
Responsible Department: Home Office
The Home Secretary stopped the existing final salary system to a career-average scheme and an increase in average contributions. Not only that, but they are being told that they must work longer before they can claim their pension, and that, when they do, it will be worth less.
Police Officers now find that the pension scheme they signed up to in good faith, as a reasonable compensation for the dangers they face – and had a reasonable expectation of it being honoured.
To remove their secure, planned futures from them in this manner is unjust and immoral. Police Officers have had a massive reduction in their living standards and pensions over the last few years.
The overhaul of Police pensions should be fairer for the Police.
The only way that this can be achieved is through a Royal Commission being set up to examine Police Pay and Pensions.
