Overweight officers (6305_15)
How many members of your police force have had to take a leave of absence from their work or been discharged due to being overweight in the following years:
I am requesting the number of instances only; no personal data is requested.
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.
