Non-Pay Budget 19,200 165,400

Pay Spend 803,359 817,957

Pay is the spend on all pay costs for the roles.  Basic pay, Employer National Insurance contributions, Employer Pension contributions and all allowances payable with the role.

Non-pay is other costs, for example equipment, supplies and services, overtime, and travel.

For the Adult care abuse team this also includes the contribution we make to the local authorities.

We do support some things through central departments so there wouldn’t be charges for the building they work in, the IT equipment they use, an allocation of Police vehicles for the team to use if appropriate.

*It important to note that that although we have provided data for the two specific teams above, it is the responsibility of each individual in the force and part of the force mission statement to protect the public and help those in need .
