POLICE constables who have been in the force and made it past probation will be given a pay rise.

This is something that has not happened since 2011, says Commissioner of Police Ben Groenewald.

He said important decisions were made at a meeting a fortnight ago.

Among them is a pay rise for 189 constables from $13,000 to $15,000.

"As from the first of August, those qualified constables on PL08 can expect an increase in salary to PL07. The revival of POLTAC — Police Training Advisory Committee," Mr Groenewald said.

"The appointment of a promotion board and the advertisements of all acting posts to be permanently filled. Also, the revival of police associations as in the Police Act.

"Discussions with our political heads on the implementations and review of allowances and review of the Police Act and disciplinary regulations."

Mr Groenewald said a challenging quarter awaited police officers with the upcoming general election.

"Our full co-operation and dedication is required in making this election a success. We will be requesting from you to walk the extra mile."
