Police Officer Statistics - 1247/19

Date Responded 13 November 2019

Provision of information held by Northumbria Police made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the 'Act')

As you may be aware the purpose of the Act is to allow a general right of access to information held at the time of a request, by a Public Authority (including the Police), subject to certain limitations and exemptions.

You asked:

From 2010 to the present date confirm under the freedom of information act

  1. The total amount of front line police officers made redundant.
  2. Front line police officers who applied for and were granted voluntary redundancy.
  3. Amount of front line police officers who were medically discharged from employment with the force .
  4. Number of front line police officers who retired.
  5. Number of front line police officers who were dismissed from the force .
  6. The total number of front line police officers per year for the above criteria per year from 2010 to present date.

On the 23/10/19 after we sought clarity you changed point 6 to read

the total number of front line police officers whom were dismissed for misconduct from the period 2010-to present date per year

In Response:

Please note that this request has been aggregated with your previous request (FOI 1154/19) with regards to time constraints under the Act, as they refer to the same subject area.

Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted with both the People Services and Professional Standards Departments of Northumbria Police.  I can confirm that the information you have requested is held by Northumbria Police.

I am able to disclose the located information to you as follows.

To note - Front line policing is defined as “those who are in everyday contact with the public and who directly intervene to keep people safe and enforce the law”.

To note – figures at point 5 include 2 officers in 2018 that are not counted in point 6.  They were probationers and dismissed through Reg.13.  This is not a dismissal under the misconduct regulations.  Also there are 3 officers in 2018 in point 6 that are not included in point 5.  People Services records show them as resigned but in a change of regulations they would have been dismissed.
