Police: Pay

Volume 488: debated on Wednesday 25 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what the salary range is of the chief constable of each constabulary for each year since 1997. (252942)

Until September 2003, chief constables were paid according to a series of pay scales based on the population of the force area. Information on salaries paid to each chief constable from 1997 to September 2003 is not available centrally. From September 2003, the salaries for each chief constable post in England and Wales is contained in Home Office Circulars, which can be found on the Home Office website at:

I am also placing copies of the relevant Home Circulars in the House of Commons Library.
