The police pension schemes are included in the scope of the Independent Public Service Pensions Commission, which is due to produce its final report in March. The Government will respond thereafter. No timetable has been set for the implementation of any potential changes to the police pension schemes.

In response to the Independent Public Service Pensions Commission's interim report, the Government announced at the spending review that we will implement progressive changes to the level of employee contributions to public service pensions. These changes will be phased in from April 2012.

Any changes will be subject to the normal consultation processes in line with statutory requirements.
