Updated Nigerian Police Salary Structure 2021 – I just learned that sometime around April 2019 – Another review was made to the Salaries for Nigerian Police (formally the Nigerian Police Force.)
Let’s just get into it. Below are the estimated annual salaries in the Nigerian police arranged by ranks. The list range from non-sworn employees known as Police recruits all through the Inspector general of Police.
CONPOSS: this stands for Consolidated Police Salary Structure. It’s the equivalent of Nigeria Civil Service Grade Level. So, a Police recruit is in composs 1 which is similar to grade level 1.
STEPS is the number of years you’ve been on a particular rank. A Corporal in step 3 is the same as a 3rd-year corporal. The 3rd year corporal earns a little more than a 1st year corporal.
Steps in the police force stop at 10 which is supposed to be the 10th year. You’d likely be promoted to a new rank by your 5th year or earlier.
I’d like to keep this page simple. So I’ll just be dropping the step 1 salaries for the rank. Just know this is the bare minimum one would get a particular rank.
