Police: Prosecutions

Volume 487: debated on Wednesday 4 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many serving police officers have been (a) prosecuted and (b) convicted of a criminal offence in each month since June 2006, broken down by (i) sex, (ii) age and (iii) police force; and how many were (A) suspended from duty, (B) demoted, (C) dismissed and (D) cautioned. (253017)

I have been informed by the Office for Criminal Justice Reform that the data held centrally on court proceedings do not contain information about the circumstances behind each case, beyond the description provided in the statute under which prosecutions are brought.

It is therefore not possible to identify the occupation of a defendant who has been prosecuted or convicted of a criminal offence. As a result the information requested on court proceedings is not available.
