STARTING pay for police officers in Jersey is now more than 70% higher than in the UK.
A major review of police pay has been promised by the Home Affairs Minister after the gulf between police pay in Jersey and the UK was revealed.
Last week it was announced by the UK Home Secretary that the starting salary for a police constable was to be cut by £4,000 to £19,000 per year – a long way short of the Jersey starting figure of more than £32,777 per year.
