I would like to know the number of police officers sacked or suspended relating to claims of extremism or radicalisation. As an example, this could include an officer who was suspended for posting extremist messages on Facebook. Another example could be an officer suspended for expressing support for Islamic State. I would like this information for the last five years, broken down by year and by rank. Where possible I would like to know why they have been suspended and if they were subsequently reinstated or sacked. Please can you provide this information electronically.
I am writing to inform you that we have searched our records and the information you requested is not held by West Midlands Police. We are unable to locate any records of officers being suspended or otherwise at any time for the reasons requested above.
