Sergeant to Inspector (417A/24)


Can you please provide me with details of the Sgt to Inspector promotion pass rates run in WMP from calendar year 2018?

  1. Applications by sex and by year
  2. Pass rates by stage by year
  3. Overall pass rate by sex by year

I would like you to include the numbers as well as the percentages

These rates will be based on original applicant pools, not an aggregated total


See following table, but please note – It has only been possible to provide the outcomes of the process which will be based on interview / assessment. We do not collate details of any prior stages such as local paper-sift before assessment and therefore, cannot provide figures for question 2 (pass rates by stage).

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.

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.
