Numbers & ranks within Devon & Cornwall Constabulary 2000-2015

The request was partially successful.

1. Please provide the figures for how many (i) police officers and (ii) police staff you employed each year from 2000 until 2015.

2. Please provide a break down to show how many police officers you employed at each rank (i.e. constable, sergeant, inspector, chief inspector, superintendent, chief superintendent - chief police officer ranks can be collected together in a single category) at each year.

3. Please further provide a break down for each year to show how many police officers at each rank were (i) in the uniformed branch and (ii) how many were detectives.

Note: I appreciate that there will be staffing fluctuations throughout each year, long term absences, parental leave, full-time equivalent issues etc, so please feel free to use your judgement in defining when such a personnel snapshot should be taken - though it would be preferred that such figures reflect approximate one-year gaps between them (e.g. if 2000 figures captured at 1st March 2000 then 2001 figures captured at 1st April 2001 world be fine, but at 31st December 2001 less so).

Many thanks,

Dear Mr Hawkins,

Many thanks for your swift response, and for so assiduously explaining the form of the data you have provided.

I imagine sometimes working under FOIA can be a thankless task, so sincerely, it is much appreciated.

Kind regards,

David Cinzano
