Officer Retirement (3457_15)

Request

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 I seek the following information regarding, number of police officers and retirement courses.

 

  1. The predicted number of serving police officers that will retire in 2016 including those through ill-health.

 

  1. The number of police officers still serving that have thirty years pensionable service, under the – Old (1987) Police Pension Scheme.

 

  1. The number of police officers still serving but entitled to the Short Service Pension scheme i.e. any police officer that is a late joiner to the service and cannot complete 25 years pensionable service. However, a Constable or Sergeant can retire at 55 years of age under this scheme with an index linked pension, but they can also work on until aged 60 and thereby accumulate more pension.

 

  1. The number of police officers that are on secondment – out of force – but have attained pensionable service.

 

  1. The number of dedicated retirement courses/seminars your forces runs for retiring police officers per annum.

 

  1. The service provider that delivers any such retirement course(s) or seminars how and when such tendering process is carried out.

 

  1. The cost charged to the Force(s) or Police Crime Commissioner. Whether this is done through collaboration process with a neighbouring force(s). To include the contract or tender expiry date and process in selecting such providers

Response

  1. The predicted number of serving police officers that will retire in 2016 including those through ill-health.

 

The number of 1987 members eligible to retire on 30 years by end December 2015 is 53

The number of 1987 members eligible to retire on 30 years from start January 2016 to end December 2016 is 161

 

We are unable to forecast the number of projected Ill Health Retirements. Please note that the fact that a person is eligible to retire on 30 years should not be misconstrued as a prediction that they will do so.

 

  1. The number of police officers still serving that have thirty years pensionable service, under the – Old (1987) Police Pension Scheme.

 

= 12 as at 09 September 2015

We have interpreted your question to mean, the total number of persons for whom it is the case that their 55th birthday is before their 30 year date = 1,001

 

  1. The number of police officers that are on secondment – out of force – but have attained pensionable service.

 

The pensions department do not keep records of whether or not somebody is seconded, in or out of the force, as it has no relevance to their pension status.

 

  1. The number of dedicated retirement courses/seminars your forces runs for retiring police officers per annum.

 

Pre retirement courses are not run by the organisation

 

  1. The service provider that delivers any such retirement course(s) or seminars how and when such tendering process is carried out.
