Well the police have a long list of allowances that they take. The most popular allowances are risk allowance and uniform allowance. The other allowances we do not have concrete information so we can not yet divulge it. We will verify the rest of the allowance aside risk and personal allowance and then update this answer.

On the question on money after service, the police have a very good pension scheme on well engraved in our constitution as stated below.

Subject to the provisions of this Decree, unless expressly exempted by or under any enactment relating to social security or pensions, and in force after the commencement of this Decree, all persons in the public service or Police Force on or after the first day of January, 1972 shall be deemed to be members of the Social Security Fund in respect of any service rendered by them on or after that date in the public service or Police Force.
Section 2-Restriction of Law Relating to Pensions.

Subject to the provisions of this Decree, the service of any person in the public service or Police Force on or after the first day of January, 1972, shall not be pensionable service for the purpose of any law relating to pensions and accordingly, that law shall, subject as aforesaid, be deemed to have ceased to apply to any such person in respect of service on or after that date.
