QUEENSLAND police officers will get a 2.2% per annum pay rise for three years after reaching a deal with the State Government.

Police Minister Jack Dempsey said the enterprise bargaining agreement, signed on Wednesday, would be put to union members in a ballot and if accepted begin on July 1.

He said it was a pleasing but hard fought outcome.

"As everyone knows, the union's president Ian Leavers is a very tough opponent at the best of times and he certainly lived up to his reputation in this negotiation," he said.

"However I am pleased a compromise was reached and the Government and unions can get on with the job of providing the best possible police service for officers and the Queensland community."
