There is no recorded information held in a retrievable searchable system. In the event an officer is injured in the course of their duties, and it’s considered, as their employer the force is legally liable, then the claim for compensation would likely be paid.  In the event they are injured and its not considered the force, as their employer was negligent, then the claim would be defended
