Dear Ms Evans,

Freedom of Information Request Reference No: 2017070000311

I write in response to your request for information that was received by
the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) on 08 July 2017. I apologise for the
delay in responding to your request and any inconvenience caused. I note
that you seek access to the following information:

"Please confirm , in calendar years, how many MPS staff have received over
payments in the last 5 years. This is including Civilian staff , Police
Officers and those who has left employment with the MPS"

Following receipt of your request, I have conducted searches to locate
information that is relevant to your request. These searches located the
requested information.

DECISION
I have disclosed the located information to you. Please find the requested
information below.

Table one: Number of police officers and members of police staff overpaid
from 01 January 2012 to 31 August 2017, broken down by calendar year.

Please note that the information provided within the table above includes
employees that have left the MPS.

MPS Overpayments - Supporting Information
Overpayments can be made if there are changes to a police officer or
member of police staff's working arrangements. On occasion, if the
paperwork supporting a change of working arrangements is delayed or not
completed, this can result in an overpayment. For example, when a member
of staff reduces their hours from full to part time, takes a career break,
has a change of role and benefits, their wages may not reflect the changes
immediately and can result in an overpayment.

The Metropolitan Police Service seeks to recover all overpayments. In
appropriate circumstances we will agree to a repayment plan (in
instalments) in order to be fair to staff. It would be unusual for the MPS
to agree a repayment plan that would exceed the actual period of the
overpayment.
 
COMPLAINT RIGHTS
This notice concludes your request for information. I would like to thank
you for your interest in the MPS.

Your attention is drawn to the attached sheet which details your right of
complaint.

Should you have any further enquiries concerning this matter, please write
or contact Damion Baird on telephone number 0207 161 6510 quoting the
reference number above.

Yours sincerely

Damion Baird
