Can I claim food expenses if I am retained on duty?

When a member of a police force is retained on duty beyond his normal daily period of duty, he shall be reimbursed the cost of any meal he then necessarily obtains provided that expenditure is reasonable and backed by a receipt.

An officer has to be retained on duty in excess of two hours past his normal finish time to claim this allowance, and the allowances are paid in line with the limits set in Force Policy.

Can I claim travelling expenses if I perform a split shift or I am recalled to duty between two tours?
