PSD establishment / cost - 174/18

Date Responded 27 February 2018

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:

For each of the individual financial years: 2012/13, 2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18 (to date) 

1. How many full time equivalent (FTE) staff members did your force employ in your professional standards department? In each financial year please provide a total number of FTE staff members, subsequently breakdown by the number of police staff (warrant card holding officers) and civilian staff (non-warrant card holding).

2. For each of the individual financial years, what was the total financial expenditure of your professional standards department? This includes all costs incurred by the department, for example wages, operational expenditure, expenses etc.

In relation to question two I seek only the overall expenditure of the department and I am not asking for an itemised breakdown of costs. 

In Response:

We have now had the opportunity to fully consider your request and I provide a response for your attention. 

Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted with the Human Resources and Finance 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.
