Part IIIPrevious Service outside the United Kingdom

7.—(1) Where a person has completed any service (not falling within paragraph 4 of Part I of this Schedule) in a police force in a country or territory outside the United Kingdom, the period mentioned in regulation 17(3) shall be calculated as follows.

(2) Convert the relevant pay into sterling using the rate of exchange prevailing on the relevant day.

(3) Take the amount in sterling determined under sub-paragraph (2) (“the sterling equivalent”) and determine from the annual rates of pay payable to constables in the Police Service of Northern Ireland in accordance with the principal regulations—

(a)which annual rate is equal to the sterling equivalent, or

(b)if none is equal, which of the annual rates exceeding the sterling equivalent is closest to it, or

(c)if none equals or exceeds the sterling equivalent, which of the annual rates is highest.

(4) Determine the period of service in the rank of constable for which the annual rate determined under sub-paragraph (3) is payable.

(5) Include the period mentioned in sub-paragraph (4) in the period of service completed by the police trainee.

8.—(1) In this Part of this Schedule the “relevant pay” means, in relation to a person who has served in a police force in a country or territory outside the United Kingdom, the annual rate of normal basic pay (excluding any allowances) which would have been payable on the relevant day to that person had he been serving in that force on that day.

(2) For the purposes of sub-paragraph (1) as it applies in relation to a person who has served in a police force, it shall be assumed—

(a)that he was serving on a full-time basis,

(b)that the length of his period of service as reckoned for the purposes of pay as a member of that force is equal to the length of the period which he had completed on the date on which he in fact left that force, and

(c)where that force has different ranks, that he was serving in the lowest rank in which service of that length can be completed,

and where it is necessary to make an assumption about any other factor to determine the rate of pay which would have been payable to that person on the relevant day, the assumption shall be made by the Chief Constable.

(3) In this Part of this Schedule the “relevant day” means, in relation to any person, the day on which that person begins service as a police trainee.
