David Lock QC provides an update to the flawed police pension regulations 2015

David Lock QC has released a new paper over the financial disaster that was imposed on some police officers by the forced implementation of the Police Pension Regulations 2015.

The Government have indicated that they will remedy the unsatisfactory situation, but it is not yet known how they are planning to resolve the issue, or when.

This is going to be a complex matter to unpick because retrospective changes to ill-health pensions will have a knock on effect to the calculated value of injury pensions as well.

    David Lock QC is like an old Jack Russell terrier I used to have, if there was a rat about, he would sniff him out and grab it by the scruff of the neck then shake the living daylights out of it. I’m just glad he’s on our side.

    Good job we have David Lock looking after our interests, because he seems to be doing what the Federation aren’t!!
    Thank you Mr Lock for having our backs.

    I tried to ask my old federation about this and got no help! I was transferred onto the 2015 scheme from the 87 and given an ill health pension & injury award in 2016 …. do I get a solicitor? Or wait? And if so who is best?

    All the above brought in under T. May as Home Secretary and PM. For some reason she appeared to hate the Police and did everything in her power to make our life more and more difficult. Reduced Police numbers, wrecked the pensions including changing the basis on which the annual % rise was calculated, reduced to almost nil the stop and search powers causing a massive leap in stabbing deaths. Scrapped the Police College at Bramshill House, introduced a much more politically correct training for PC’s and Officers then totally undermined them by introducing Police and Crime Commissioners. I am old school CID when we had proper career detectives which she also scrapped. I am reminded of what an old PC said to me the day I joined back in the 1960s “I’m glad I am retiring, the job just isn’t what it used to be”. If only he could see it now. I am so glad I am out and have now been receiving my pension for longer than I paid into it. I for one would like to see an “English” Police service (it used to be Police Force but that was deemed non PC as well) just like a National Scottish, N. Ireland and I believe a North and South Welsh Police. I wish you all well.

      Actually to be factually correct the start of the rot was started under labour when Tony Blair was responsible and labour were responsible for the Police Injury) Regulations 2006, that was when the first attempt at eroding our conditions of service started.

      On a personal note I am looking forward to seeing how all individual forces are going to right their wrongs and would like to thank David Lock.
