Reduction of pension in case of default

This section has no associated Executive Note

53.  Where a regular police officer or a former regular police officer becomes permanently disabled and has brought about or substantially contributed to the disablement by that officer’s own default, the police authority may reduce the amount of any–

(a)ill-health pension; or

(b)deferred pension which comes into payment early on the ground of permanent disablement for engaging in any regular employment,

  • payable to that officer by the police authority by an amount not exceeding a half of that to which that officer would otherwise be entitled:

Provided that–

(a)this regulation shall not apply where the person concerned–

(i)is in receipt of a standard ill-health pension and has attained the age of 55 years; or

(ii)is in receipt of a deferred pension and has attained the age of 65 years; and

(b)where the pension of a regular police officer has been reduced under this regulation, then if when the officer attains the age of 65 years the reduced pension is less than the amount of the deferred pension which would have been payable on that officer attaining that age had that officer been granted such a pension on the date of that officer ceasing to serve it shall be increased to that amount.
