Question

I wish to make a Freedom of Information request regarding deaths of police staff, police officers and PCSOs

1. How many deaths in service since 2002? Can this be broken into on duty and off duty.

2. Causes of deaths – again separated into on duty and off duty. (eg traffic accidents, natural causes, after an accident, suicide, terrorism)

Answer

Please see the table below for the number of police officers and staff recorded as deceased in the table below. We only hold information from April 2009.
