Bobbies miss out on £1.4m
POLICE officers in Staffordshire are missing out on a share of £1.4 million in perks this year.
The annual incremental pay rises are not being dished out to the 1,948 existing officers this year after being suspended by the Government.
Staffordshire Police had previously refused to reveal how much the contractual annual pay rises cost them.
But it has now emerged that the force has saved £1.4 million by not having to pay the incremental increases in 2012/13.

Officers had received the contractual increases as long as their performance was 'satisfactory'.
Staffordshire Police are on course to save £4.4 million more than expected on their pay budget by the end of March.
Almost half of the additional saving is because an increased number of officers are being forced to retire and more police staff are leaving.
