Suspended Officers (8800_16)


Thank you very much indeed for your response to my FOI request from May this year. You have kindly given me the rank of each officer suspended and their salary band. Could I possibly ask would it be possible to let me know how many days each officer was suspended for please?

2. Please include the overall amount paid to those officers while they were suspended. Please also break these figures down by year.
3. I would also like details of each officer’s rank, why they were suspended, what was the outcome of the suspension.
4a. What is the longest suspension during the three year period.
b. How much was paid to that officer during the suspension?
c. Please include the officer’s rank, reason for suspension and outcome of suspension.
