Another notable benefit is our overtime policy. If you are called in early or stay late on a regularly scheduled work day you get paid at time and a half. If you are called in on a day off you get double time. If you work a stat you get double time and a half. If a stat falls on a regularly scheduled day off you get either another day in lieu or eight hours additional pay.
The benefit that we have that exceeds what any other police service I've heard of is our sick time. It is unlimited.
Alas, recalled to work while RTO on a stat, is just time and a half. Note to all, drink lots on stat holidays and turn off phone.
