Officers Providing Mutual Aid and the Away from Home Allowance

27 Jun 2018

In response to questions about the ‘away from home allowance’ and how it will work for upcoming mutual aid operations, the Strategic Lead of NPoCC ACC Chris Shead has said:

“There is an ongoing discussion about the future of the away from home allowance between the NPCC and the Police Federation. In current regulations, the away from home allowance is triggered if officers are deemed to be held on reserve, meaning they are available for immediate deployment.

“Each operation is unique and therefore the Gold Commander for each operation makes a determination as to whether the officers are held on reserve based on the individual circumstances.

“Any officers travelling to another force to support the Presidential Visit will be informed as to what allowances they will receive”.
