A greedy police officer claimed £69,000 on top of his basic annual salary taking home £109,000 in one year, it has been revealed.
The unknown police sergeant, employed by the Metropolitan Police, was earning an annual wage of £40,000, but ended up taking home a sum three times that, figures from a Freedom of Information request show.
Meanwhile, another police officer from the same force topped up his £30,000 salary by £55,000, The Sun said.
On average London officers get £4,000 in overtime a year.
It’s outrageous that Police should get paid for working overtime… In fact Police shouldn’t get paid at all… disgusting.
Of course…the Police authority could pay for another officer to help out…instead of working their Police to death.
Where else in the world would you see a major newspaper treat a story about Police WORKING VERY HARD like they are guilty of strangling kittens?
The Mail are a bunch of self-serving, self-righteous prigs…
