The PSA regularly consults with members on a range of issues of importance for the rank and the wider Service.
The annual resilience survey looks at member working hours, wellbeing and role requirements, and the pay and morale survey gives members the chance to share their views and inform our work on pay and conditions, and general police morale.

The results of our surveys and engagement exercises inform our work with government and national partners and provide evidence around our recommendations and submissions to the Police Remuneration Review Body (PRRB).

The information we receive from our members provides us with hugely valuable insight and information to represent members’ best interests and to push for positive influence across the Service.

We also occasionally share consultation exercises from partners and key national organisations.

Pay Survey

Joint PSA / SANI survey into pay and conditions of service.

The 2023/24 Pay Survey is now CLOSED

This consultation exercise is key in informing the PSA’s work to represent the best interests of members and to push for positive change and influence when it comes to processes and decisions around police officer pay.
The survey is conducted by the Police Superintendents' Association and the Superintendents' Association of Northern Ireland in conjunction with the Police Federation of England and Wales, and will provide critical evidence to those that make pay decisions. The information obtained will also be used to inform future submissions to the Pay Review Body.
The survey asks about views of life in the police service, as well as opinions on recent and upcoming changes to pay and conditions, and how future decisions about pay can be made in as fair a way as possible.
Every year, the pay survey has enabled the PSA to collect valuable insight and data on its membership, which has supported work to secure positive change on behalf of members. To ensure the findings of the survey are as credible as possible it is vitally important that the completion/response rate amongst members is as high as possible.  Members’ participation is very much appreciated.

PSA and SANI Pay Survey Participant Information 

Privacy notice


This privacy notice sets out how Police Federation of England and Wales ("PFEW") will process your personal information in connection with the Police Superintendents Association Survey 2023.

The survey is being conducted by the Police Superintendents' Association (PSA) and the Superintendents' Association of Northern Ireland (SANI) in conjunction with the Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW).

Depending on which organisation you are a member of, the PSA or the SANI may process your personal data in connection with the Survey. You can find out more about their responsibilities by reading their privacy policy or by contacting them using the contact details they have provided. 

Neither the PFEW, the PSA or the SANI will collect or process any data concerning health or any other special categories of personal data in connection with the Survey. This is because all Survey responses are anonymous. The PFEW will take steps to ensure that nobody is identified or identifiable from the Survey responses they provide.

How is your information used in connection with the Survey?

For the purposes of the Survey, your name and email address may be used by the PSA or the SANI to send you a copy of the Survey. However, as mentioned above, all Survey responses are anonymous. This anonymity is achieved because whilst you will receive a link to the Survey by email, once you click through to access the Survey this link is completely disassociated with your email address or any other contact details. In other words, when the PFEW receives a Survey response it has no way of 'tying the response back' to the individual who provided the information. Moreover, when the PFEW publishes its report and any other information in relation to the Survey (and provides this to the PSA or the SANI) it will take steps to ensure that all information is aggregated and anonymous so that the PSA, SANI or other third parties have no way of 'tying the information back' to an individual.

Sharing Your Information

We use data processors who are third parties who provide elements of services for us. We have contracts in place with our data processors. This means that they cannot do anything with your personal information unless we have instructed them to do it. They will not share your personal information with any organisation apart from us. They will hold it securely and retain it for the period we instruct.

In some circumstances we are legally obliged to share information. For example, under a court order, but in any such scenario, we’ll satisfy ourselves that we have a lawful basis on which to share the information and document our decision making and satisfy ourselves we have a legal basis on which to share the information.


We use a variety of organisational, physical and IT security measures to help safeguard your personal information.

Locations of Processing

Your personal information will be stored within the EU.

Legal Basis

When we process your personal information in accordance with the Survey, we do so where we have a legitimate interest in doing so, provided it is not outweighed by your right to privacy.

  • Access to the personal information you have given to us
  • Rectification of information you think is inaccurate
  • Erasure of your personal information in certain circumstances
