Special constables to receive increase in next pay

SPECIAL constables are expected to see the 10 per cent pay increase promised to them by the government in their next pay.

This was confirmed by police chief operations officer ACP Rusiate Tudravu.

On December 18 last year, the government announced pay increases for civil servants, including a 10 per cent pay increase across the board for special constables, effective January 1 this year.

While most police constables are claiming they have yet to receive the increase, ACP Tudravu said part of it was paid out to them in their first pay this year which was a week ago.

"I would like to clarify that the number of days starting from the 1st of this year to our pay day is just about five to six days, so they will not see the full impact of the pay rise," ACP Tudravu said.

"They will see the full increase in their next pay because it will cover the full hours and two weeks' pay.

"Our problem with the first pay is that because we got paid just five to six days into 2014."

ACP Tudravu said most of the hours covered in the special constables first pay check for this year was the number of hours they worked in 2013.

He said those constables with problems regarding their pay should first check with the police finance department instead of running to the media.

"First of all, I want to tell these officers running to the media that it is wrong," he said.
