* Police Negotiating Board Circulars form a single numerical series. Those which in themselves provide authority to implement an agreement carry the serial number alone, while those which are advisory are designated as such after the serial number.


The Police Negotiating Board has recorded that the Official Side has made a non-consolidated payment of £250 to all officers serving within the Police Service of Scotland on 28 October 2021.

This payment is to recognize the significant challenges that officers have faced in 2020 and 2021, including the flexibility they have shown in responding to these new challenges and their overall contribution in keeping all our communities safe.
