"The review started with 750 staff but the number fell when we took into account those who chose to leave voluntarily; those who were successful in securing posts in the council and those that decided to take a lower graded post
to secure their employment.
Although female employees are paid on average more than men, women form a higher proportion of the lower graded posts
Chief Constable Dave Thompson acknowledged the reasons for the disparity and said some of the gap was due to more men being in higher graded posts
He also directed the Finance department to present final plan for up grading the pay scales of 1-14 government employees and also solve problems that surfaced in the wake of already up graded posts
