In Response:

 

Data is not held against adjusted or recuperative duties as a result of on duty assaults, PTSD or mental health issues therefore we are unable to respond to questions 1 – 3.

 

4. During 2018 there were 143 officers on adjusted duties and 402 on recuperative duty.

 

5. During 2017 there were 99 officers on adjusted duties and 340 on recuperative duty.

 

6. During 2016 there were 5 officers on adjusted duties and 336 on recuperative duty.

 

Legislation regarding ‘Adjusted Duties’ was recently introduced hence the steady increase of officers being recorded on adjusted duties officers continue to be assessed under the relevant criteria.

 

The increase in recuperative duties between 2017 / 2018 is due to a review of restricted / recuperative officers under the Capability and Deployment procedure.
