Dear Sutton, Christopher,

The clarification below seems to be helping other forces arrive at the information, so I hope it will assist you.

By "Response Duty" we mean officers assigned to respond to calls from the public, presumably those on shift duties, who would attend calls from the public, such as beat officers, police vehicle drivers, dog officers, traffic etc. (Inspector, Sergeant, PC)

By "Administerial" we mean those officers specifically assigned to roles that are office based, such as audit, police administrative roles that by virue of the job, mean that they work in an office for their tour as opposed to responding to public calls."

Many Thanks
Steve Bennett

Dear Chris,

We have now received responses from 35 of the 43 forces.

"Could you please clarify what you mean by 'response duties' and 'non-response administerial departments'?
Do you mean response duties relating to officers in dedicated teams such as Community Beat Officers, Safer Neighbourhood teams or Targeted Patrol Teams?
Also, what do you mean by non-response administerial departments? Are you referring to departments such as IT, Personnel for example?"

I understand from other forces, the Home Office classsification divides roles by Operational, Operational Support, Organisational and Organisational Support. These categories are fine for our purposes.

To assist, most forces have provided :-

1.A full count of officers by rank
2.A count of all officers that respond to public calls, including the categories you have outlined
3.A list of the non response administerial departments
4.Non response administerial departments to include count of all officers assigned to office based duty as opposed to responding to public calls requiring attendance.

As the reply date has passed, I wonder if you could advise when the information requested will be available.

Kind Regards

Steve Bennett
