Police officers are governed and protected by a set of terms and conditions set out in law by Parliament known as Police Regulations.

PFEW has produced a Quick Reference Guide in line with our current understanding of Police Regulations 2003 and determinations, Police (Conduct) Regulations 2012, Police (Complaints and Misconduct) Regulations 2012 and Police (Performance) Regulations 2012 as at August 2016.

This summary of officers' main terms and conditions is not intended to be exhaustive, nor can it be considered a substitute for the original regulations and determinations which govern the terms and conditions of appointment. An updated version will be produced as and when regulations change.

The Quick Reference Guide is aimed mainly at local Federation secretaries and other reps dealing with pay and conditions queries raised locally but we are working on a more user-friendly version as well as a set of frequently asked questions for members.

You can also view a pdf version of the guide

However for your convenience the Warwickshire Police Federation website has categorised the elements and you can find the reference easily within this site.

If you have specific questions regarding your conditions, please contact your local Federation
