Below are the estimated annual salaries in the Nigerian police arranged by ranks. The list ranges 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.
