I am requesting the number of instances only; no personal data is requested.

Response

Obesity is not a sickness category on our systems, therefore we have no instances where an officer has been discharged or taken a leave of absence due to Obesity.

 Obesity would be an underlying cause rather than the actual illness that caused sickness absence ,  to research underlying causes would mean each sickness record would need to be reviewed,  this would exceed the appropriate costs limit under section 12 of the Freedom of information Act 2000.
