PNB “Police Officers Handbook”

The Scottish Police Federation warmly welcomes the publication of a Guide to Police Officer Conditions in Scotland. This Guide is a living document that consolidates the different regulations, determinations and Circulars into appropriate subject headings.

The Guide is owned by the Police Negotiating Board (PNB), the authorative and legal body in such matters. The PNB membership includes Police Officer Staff Associations, Police Scotland, the Scottish Police Authority and Scottish Government.

The guide has been optimised for digital use on PCs, Tablets and Smartphones that reflects the dynamic nature of its content and we would encourage members to refer to that as opposed to attempting to download a local copy

The guide can be accessed through links on this site or directly at
