Paid Leave

The normal annual leave allowance will be 25 days on entry plus 12 Public and Privilege holidays, rising to 30 days annual leave after 5 years’ reckonable service (Grade 5 and above appointments start on 30 days annual leave).  

The annual leave year runs from 1st February each year.  In the first year of employment, the number of days annual leave you are allocated will depend on which month your employment commences and will be allocated on a pro-rata basis accordingly. 

With regards to consideration of reckonable service each case will be considered on a case by case basis, upon appointment, as per police in the Police Staff Handbook.
