Drink Driving (232_14)


Please could you provide me with the number of police officers that have been prosecuted for drink driving offences since 2010, up until the end of November 2014?


For each year I would like to know the number of offenders, the rank of the officer and any subsequent disciplinary action taken against the officers.


2010 = 3 x PC convicted, 1final Written Warning, 2 dismissed.

2011 = 3 x PC convicted, 1 resigned, 1 final written warning and 1 dismissed

2012 = 1 x PC convicted and dismissed

2013 = 2 x PC convicted and both dismissed.

2014 = 0


Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from a number of data sources used by forces for police purposes. The detail collected to respond specifically to your request is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when interpreting those data.


The figures provided therefore are our best interpretation of relevance of data to your request, but you should be aware that the collation of figures for ad hoc requests may have limitations and this should be taken into account when those data are used.

If you decide to write an article / use the enclosed data we would ask you to take into consideration the factors highlighted in this document so as to not mislead members of the public or official bodies, or misrepresent the relevance of the whole or any part of this disclosed material.
