Police (Descriptions of Service) Order 2012 comes into force

Implementation date: 21 December 2012

The order amends the Police Pensions Act 1976 to ensure that persons occupying senior posts in the National Crime Agency and the College of Policing are eligible for membership of a police pension scheme if they were a member, or eligible to be a member, of a police pension scheme immediately before beginning service in the post. It also amends the Police Act 1996 in relation to police officers seconded to the College of Policing. The order can be viewed on the UK legislation website.
