What happens if I am suspended from duty?
In serious cases, it might be decided that the officer concerned should be removed from his or her normal duties or be suspended during the course of the formal investigation or pending the outcome of misconduct proceedings. Such a course of action should be taken only where it is necessary and in the public interest to do so. In all cases, unless it was impossible or positively undesirable to do son, consideration should first be given to a temporary transfer to other duties rather than to suspension.

Where an officer is suspended this will be with pay, except where the officer is in custody following conviction, or is absent and his or her whereabouts are unknown, when the suspension will normally be without pay. Neither removal from normal duties or suspension implies any decision about the misconduct case.
