Devon and Cornwall Police Federation is going to an industrial tribunal today to challenge the force's policy of compulsory retirement after 30 years' service. The force is one of five being sued.
In total 136 Devon and Cornwall officers have so far retired under the arrangement, some of them well below the national retirement age. They are given a full pension on leaving the force. They claim the policy is unfair, and driven by a need to cut the force's budget.
