Business interests (21790/18)
I would like to know how many police constables have declared business interests in relation to sale of products (marketing) such as Avon, Forever Living or similar.
I would also like to know how many of these officers (with declared business interests as above) are actively investigated by PSD (for whatever matter, not related to the business interest) or have live complaints (not related to the business interest).
Please find our response below.
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.
26 officers have submitted business interests which refer to the sale of products for Avon and/or Forever Living. 1 officer is currently being investigated by PSD.*
*Please note, this data has been extracted from a field on our system where the name of the business has been recorded. The name of the business is not a mandatory field, therefore, this information is not always entered on our system.
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.
