There are many factors that influence the soil of a national policeman. Their salaries as civil servants for the year 2020 are collected by the Ministry of Finance and, although it is far from those earned by other civil servants (surgeons are the ones that charge the most in Spain), it may be increased by the complementary salaries they receive.
In addition, it must be taken into account that the salary of an agent It also depends on the position you hold: It is not the same to be a rank officer as head of a unit or member of a special division, such as geo or riot control.
First, the salary of a national police officer is divided into two parts. On the one hand, basic remuneration, that include the base salary, the increase for seniority and the extraordinary payments. And on the other hand, the rcomplementary contributions, that include many different factors, such as the destination in which the place has been obtained, the level of the position or the category. But, roughly, the average annual salary of a police officer is 24,600 euros gross, which is equivalent to about 2,000 euros gross per month.
Thus, the base salary of a police officer depends on the functional group to which he belongs. For example, an agent newly incorporated into the body is found in Basic Scale (C1) and his base salary is 9461.04 euros per year, which is equivalent to 788.42 euros per month. But to this base salary must be added the of the extra pay (681.43 euros in June and December, respectively), which would leave him with a total of 10,823.90 euros per year if he is a Basic Scale National Police who has just entered the body.
Finally, the triennia They are another component that must be added to the basic remuneration and that consist of an increase in salary for every three years worked. The extra amount the police officer receives will depend on the group he is in. For example, a C1 police officer (Basic Scale) will earn 28.59 euros per month, while an A1 (ES, EE and Facultative) will earn 46.32 euros per month.
Many factors affect supplementary payments. Some examples are:
- Destination Plugin: this ‘plus’ is governed by the role of the police officer. For example, a policeman who is on the Basic Scale of level 17 (Police) would earn 407.72 euros per month and a policeman of level 19 (Police Officer) 456.91 euros per month. Meanwhile, an inspector would reach 600 euros and a commissioner would charge a minimum of 800 euros.
- Specific add-on: this depends on the difficulty or responsibility of the work to be carried out by the agent. It is divided into the general complement -which varies according to the function of the body category- and the singular complement, which depends on the job position they occupy.
- Complement for territoriality: The geographical area has a direct influence on the salary of a national police officer, and if assigned to certain areas, it implies a greater increase in salary at the end of the month. According to data from the United in Action Police Unions (SUP) in 2019, some examples of the monthly amount by territoriality are the following: in Barcelona (capital) there is a gross monthly sum of 55.68 euros, in Madrid (capital) 184.63 euros and in the Basque Country and Navarra there is a plus of 678.61 euros, a high amount because it is considered a risk area.
- Residence compensation: This complement affects officers posted outside the Peninsula and also changes according to the functional group to which the police officer belongs. In addition, in some places there is an increase for each triennium.
