The 6.4 million quid police bill.

How much do current officers earn?

9 police on duty 24/7 which appears to cost £11,000 per day so over a grand each nice work.

Averaged from the top of the tree to the lowliest PC that might average out, but as with anything, it's all relative. I very much doubt a new recruit is going to be on anything remotely like that.

Police salaries as lifted from a police recruitment site:


Salaries can vary between police forces.
The current starting salary is between £19,000 and £22,000 a year. With several years' experience, earnings can reach around £36,500 a year.
A sergeant can earn between £36,500 and £41,000 a year, and inspectors can earn up to around £50,000.
There may be extra pay for working overtime. Police officers working in the London area may receive an additional cost of living payment.
Figures are intended as a guideline only.
Please note: the government is reviewing police pay and working conditions after the publication of the Winsor Report. For more details see the link to the Independent Review of Police Officer and Staff Remuneration and Conditions in the Opportunities section.

On that basis, no police officer is earning the figures quoted in earlier posts. My guess is that the figure quoted includes a heap of running costs that are incurred as overheads.
