Graduate Police Constables To Receive Equal Salaries With Police Inspectors, Court Rules


The Employment and labour court has ruled that police constables who have graduated will have a salary equal to that of a police inspector.

Last year graduate police constables had complained of discrimination in remuneration by the National Police Service Commission (NPSC) .

In a letter addressed to the National Treasury, Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet and the commission, the officers grumble over the fact that some of their colleagues with whom they graduated at the same time have already had their pay increased. This is despite them submitting their degree certificates, testimonials and transcripts to the commission and their certificates verified, certified and audited at the same time.

This, they said subjected them to lower rating by fellow officers in the disciplined forces and unending mockery.

The graduate police constables asked for fair treatment in terms of “pay benefits, promotions and responsibilities” from the government which they have worked so hard for.

In July last year, a section of graduate police officers complained that the Service was deliberately sidelining them when it came to job promotions.
