How do I substitue a public holiday
Annex E to Regulation 26 states that as from 22 November 2012 constables and Sergeants may, with the approval of the chief officer, substitute a day which is not a public holiday within the meaning of Regulation 3(1) of the Police Regs for any day which is such a public holiday, with the exception of Christmas Day.

A member shall give the chief officer notice of a proposed substitution not less than two months before the first day of the leave year containing the public holiday for which a day is to be substituted. The chief officer shall, subject to the exigencies of the duty, approve a proposed substitution.

The prescribed process for doing this should be published in your Force and the closing day for notifying substitutions is the 31st January of that year.
