Officer supporting the Presidential visit will receive away from home overnight allowance

03 Jul 2018

UK forces are currently planning a major national policing operation to support the forthcoming visit of US President Donald Trump.

Strategic Lead for the National Police Coordination Centre (NPoCC). Assistant Chief Constable Chris Shead said

“Having considered the current threats and resources, each of the force-level gold commanders leading the operation have agreed the requirement for officers to be ‘held on reserve’ in the event they need to be immediate deployed. This means officers will need to be ready for immediate response during the period they are off duty and therefore will be paid an away from home overnight allowance. The National Police Coordination Centre (NPoCC) is communicating this to all forces through regional mutual aid coordination centres.”
