The starting salary for student officers will be £20,169. At attestation, student officers become Constables and move on to point 1. In addition to the above, the Northern Ireland Transitional Allowance is also payable (£3,291 per annum).

Officers will move to point 2 of the pay-scale on completion of two years’ satisfactory service as a Constable (at graduation, student officers become Constables). From Points 2 to 7 the officer moves up the pay scale in line with their incremental date and subject to satisfactory performance as assessed in their individual performance reviews. An officer’s incremental date is normally the anniversary of the date that they joined the service.

These pay scales are reviewed on an annual basis.
