The PFEW Pay and Morale Survey 2017 opened on 18th April 2017, and closed on 9th June 2017. During that time we had responses from 30,557 officers, which were reduced to 30,209 after data cleansing. The response rate for the Pay and Morale Survey 2017 was therefore approximately 25% of all federated rank officers in England and Wales. Statistically, the sample size was large enough that the percentages quoted in this report can be considered to be accurate within the normal bounds of academic rigour.

The following are some key headline findings. Data are still being analysed for the Police Remuneration Review Body (PRRB) in 2018. More detailed analysis will be provided with the full report to the PRRB, and will include comparisons of groups such by rank and role; as well as more complex analysis to determine the factors that best predict officers’ morale and intention to stay in or leave the police service.
