Away from Home Overnight Allowance

Back to all Motions

2019 Police & Justice Service Group Conference
5 June 2019

The Police Staff Council (PSC) Handbook 2017 introduced payment of an overnight allowance payable to police staff in certain circumstances. Sadly many months after its welcome inclusion in the handbook the circumstances under which the allowance can be paid remains unclear in many police forces. Conference therefore calls for those entrusted to negotiate with the employers side of the Police Staff Council to seek to determine the circumstances under which a member of police staff can successfully and legitimately claim the allowance and that this determination be shared with branches who should be free to negotiate any local agreements in relation to the allowance, as they deem appropriate.
