The Scottish Police Federation represents all police officers in the ranks of constable, sergeant, inspector and chief inspector, police cadets and special constables; over 18,500 people, 98% of all police officers in Scotland.
The Scottish Government has announced the design framework for police pensions from 2015. As expected the proposals mirror those advanced for England & Wales. This is an exceptionally disappointing development and one which is unfair on the women and men of the police service of Scotland; many of whom now face significant disruption and uncertainty over their financial future and working expectations.
The announcement is accompanied by a letter from the Cabinet Secretary for Justice. This can be viewed here.
An updated copy of the SPF booklet explaining CARE pensions is also attached and can be viewed here. Please note the important additions in red text.
