The Namibian Police Force is one of the largest employers in the country and its ranks are filled with both men and women. Constables make up a large portion of that number, so most people have this question when they join: how much do constables earn in Namibia?
The standard police pay scale is determined by rank, so a constable earns N$7 000 per month.
A constable is the lowest rank in the police force, and it brings with it a salary of N$7 000 per month. This is not as much as a chief inspector’s salary, which is N$10 000 per month.
However, once you make Inspector your monthly salary increases to N$18 000 and that of a Chief Inspector is N$28 000.
The salary of a constable is N$7000 per month. A Constable can also expect to earn an additional N$1000 per month in allowances. The pay scale goes up as you move from one rank to another with the most senior ranking police officer earning around N$28 000 each month or even more depending on experience and tenure within the service.
For example, once you make Inspector your monthly salary increases to N$18 000 and that of a Chief Inspector is N$28 000.
Do not take the net salary of a constable as your net salary if you make Inspector – it won’t be that much.
This net salary of a constable is only a starting point, the amount you will make depends on your rank. If you are at Inspector level, then your net salary will be N$18 000 and if you are Chief Inspector, then it comes to N$28 000.
