Police Regulations

Police officers are governed and protected by terms and conditions known as Police Regulations. These are set out in law by Parliament.

The Police Federation of England and Wales has produced a Quick Reference Guide in line with its current understanding of Police Regulations 2003 and Determinations, Police (Conduct) Regulations 2012, Police (Complaints and Misconduct) Regulations 2012 and Police (Performance) Regulations 2012 as at October 2018.

This summary of officers' main terms and conditions is not intended to be exhaustive, nor can it be considered a substitute for the original regulations and determinations which govern the terms and conditions of appointment. An updated version will be produced when regulations change.

If you have specific questions regarding your terms and conditions, please contact your local Federation representative in the first instance.
