The administrative leave I am reading the news about Jacob Blake. It is said there: 'The officers involved have been placed on administrative leave'. What does administrative leave mean? Is it unpaid leave for a day or a few days that can be taken by employee if they desire and if an employer agrees to give it? Or is it a kind of leave that employer can force their employee to take? What is the British variant for such type of leave?

It's called "administrative leave" in British English as well. https://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/dictionary/english/administrative-leave

Thanks to James, Kevin, John Harvey and Michael Ʃ! What I thought the administrative leave is was actually 'a personal leave of absence'.

This is basically a suspension with full pay.

Generally, if there is an ongoing investigation, the leave is probably paid. There are different kinds of leave. Administrative leave is generally mandatory. One could take "a personal leave of absence" which probably is not paid. But in this situation, the leave is part of the standard operating protocols (SOPs). There is also maternity leave, etc. Sometimes you will read of "unpaid leave" or some similar wording.
