Regulation 37 - 826/19

Date Responded 15 July 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:

  1. Since 2015 to today's date, how many injured on duty retired police pensioners have Northumbria Police reviewed using Regulation 37 of the Police (injury benefit) Regulations 2006?
  2. From your answer for the above question, what were the results of those reviews?

Please answer for each year (to clarify, I would like this question answered by informing me how many injured on duty former officers stayed in the same banding, how many went up in banding, how many went down in banding and to what new band?).

For example - 2015 Band 4 - 5 reviewed, 5 reduced/remain unchanged to Band - 3

2015 Band 3 - 120 reviewed, 20 reduced/remain unchanged to band 2 Band 2 and Band 1.... etc.
