      Thames Valley Police can confirm that there were 46,533 occasions in 2011/12 where the first 30 minutes of overtime were disregarded in accordance with Police Regulations. This equals 23,266.5 hours. Using the average overtime rate this has a value of £581,662.50.

      I hope this helps you
