|Can I claim mileage/travelling expenses when working on a rest day?|
|Where an officer is required to duty on a public holiday or on a rostered rest day his/her period of duty shall include the time occupied by him/her travelling to & from his/her place of duty. This will be disregarded where the period of duty exceeds 6 hours.
Relevant Travelling Expenses may only be claimed where a member of a police force is:-
and travels to and from his home between tours, or, as the case may be, in consequence of his recall (in this paragraph referred to as "relevant travelling")
Regulation 34, Annex V(5), Police Regulations and Determinations 2003
NOTE: Some forces offer a different interpretation of this regulation and will pay mileage for police officers working on a rest day (not a re-arranged rest day). Seek out your local force travel policy/procedural guide to confirm any local variation for this regulation.
