Police officers paid £150m in bonuses for doing their job


More than £150million is paid to police officers every year for what Paul McKeever, the chairman of the Police Federation, describes as “doing your duty.”

Five officers at Northumbria Police, the force which conducted the hunt for the gunman Raoul Moat, shared performance-related bonuses last year of £115,500.

In Durham, one chief picked up an £18,700 bonus in 2009-10. In South Wales another received £14,300, and in South Yorkshire four senior officers shared £69,000.

Half of the country’s 144,000 officers received an average of £2,200 each in payments last year, totalling an estimated £145 million.

The payments were introduced by New Labour in 2002.

Please don't interpret this post as advertising, but I thought you may be interested in a series of free events taking place after performances of Boiling Frogs at the Southwark Playhouse this September. No attendance at the show necessary. Talks include Dr Nafeez Ahmed and ex Mi5 agent Annie Machon on the police state.

Full details here:
