Police Officers

Depending on when you joined the Police Officers Pension Scheme, you will be a member of either the 1987, 2006 or 2015 Schemes. Kent County Council administers the Kent Police Officer Schemes on behalf of The Chief Constable for Kent.

The State pension is paid in addition to your Police pension. Find more information about the State pension at GOV.UK.
