Coronavirus (COVID-19)

How we are working to keep our FOI Requests running during COVID-19

Rest days owed (241/16)


How many Rest Days are owed to Constables, Sergeants, Inspectors and Chief Inspectors in your force? Can you give this information as of 1 January 2016.
Could you give the figures as a total, as well as broken down annually if you have that information?


Our data are not organised in such a way as to allow us to provide this information,

Please note that these data should be interpreted with caution. 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.

Due to the limitations within our system we are only able to provide the number of rest days outstanding as at 01/01/2016 and the number of those that were outstanding 01/01/15.
