Police: Vacancies

Volume 474: debated on Tuesday 1 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many police officer vacancies of all ranks there were within (a) the Metropolitan Police Force and (b) other constabularies in each year since 1997. (195618)

This information has not been collected since 1995 following the introduction of the Police and Magistrates Courts Act 1994 which abolished Home Office authorised establishments. It is a matter for the police authority and Chief Officer of Police to determine the number of police officers that each force has.
