Number of serving officers with convictions

James Newman made this Freedom of Information request to Cambridgeshire Constabulary

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Cambridgeshire Constabulary,

Since 2007, how many police officers have worked and/or continue to work for Cambridgeshire Police whilst having criminal or civil convictions? Also could you supply a list of the offences along with the number of officers related to each offence?

This request is being made under the Freedom of Information Request. It’s within the Public Interest to know the answer to this question and any refusal will be treated as a sign of guilt that Cambridgeshire Police has something to hide from the Public. Namely how many of its officers are convicted criminals.

Yours faithfully,

I do not think that the records of anyone above constable is available or has been printed here. If one follows the papers there have been higher ranked officers involved in fraud etc. It seems that special consyables are the worst offnders but I dont think this is a true picture
