Officer Injured on Duty Forms

Date of request: March 25, 2021
Reference: 386/21

Request

I am hereby requesting information about the injuries sustained by any police officers on duty at the “Kill the Bill” protest taking place on March 21st 2021 in Bristol.

Specifically of interest is the time frame between 5PM on the 21st and 2AM on the 22nd. Please include the nature of all recorded injuries and their recorded cause.

Response

Please find all officer Injured on Duty forms submitted for the above event attached.

Please note, whilst this information is currently accurate, it is liable to change over time due to the nature of the information that is recorded.

Please also note, we are committed to creating a working environment where the health and wellbeing of our officers and staff is a priority. We have a number of approaches for supporting health and wellbeing in place, including:

  • An internal peer support network specifically for the mental wellbeing of staff.
  • A free 24/7, 365 day a year employee assistance programme so officers and staff can access counselling and advice services direct.
  • An in-house Occupational Health service.
  • A peer led Trauma Risk Management (TRiM) Programme implemented to provide support and assistance to colleagues in the aftermath of a traumatic event.
  • A chaplaincy service providing confidential pastoral support.
  • 7 Point Promise in response to assault on officers ensuring that they receive the support they need.

The attachment provided has had any personal information that could identify an officer removed in advance of disclosure. The exemption applicable to this is Section 40(2), third party personal information. This is an Absolute exemption so therefore there is no requirement to conduct a harm or public interest test. Any information is exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act if it relates to or is supplied by another individual and disclosure of that information would contravene any of the data protection principles set out in:

(a) Article 5(1) of the GDPR, and

(b) Section 34(1) of the Data Protection Act 2018;

Should any information be provided in a format in which a living individual could be identified, this would constitute personal data. This would then become a breach of rights provided under the Data Protection Act 2018. Information held on an individual by Avon and Somerset Constabulary is done so lawfully and is used for a policing purpose in line with the principles set out in the GDPR.
