Overnight allowance

What will I get paid if I work after 8 pm?

Officers from the rank of constable to chief inspector will receive an additional 10 per cent of their basic pay for all hours worked between 8:00pm and 6:00am, including over-time.

This payment is not pensionable and should be paid for each full hour actually worked. Where over-time is worked between 8:00pm and 6:00pm, the rate of the allowance is still 10 per cent of basic pay, not 10 per cent of the over-time rate. The allowance is paid in full in respect of each full hour worked – the 'Queen's half hour' is not excluded.
