John Jarman made this Freedom of Information request to Hampshire Police Authority

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 successful.

Dear Hampshire Police Authority,

I am making a request for all the information to which I am entitled under the Freedom Of Information Act. In order to assist you with this request, I am outlining my query as specifically as possible. If however this request is too wide or too unclear, I would be grateful if you could contact me by e-mail, as I understand that under the act, you are required to advise and assist requesters.

I would like to know:

1) How many former officers of the Hampshire Constabulary are currently in receipt of an injury award pension, as provided for in the Police Pensions Regulations 1987 and the Police (Injury Benefit) Regulations 2006?

2) Do you operate a policy of reducing an injury award pension to the lowest permissible band when the former officer reaches the age of 65?

3) In the years 2004 to 2008 inclusive, how many former officers’ injury award pensions were reduced to the lowest banding upon the former officer reaching the age of 65? (A total figure only is requested, but I have no objection if you break the figures down by year)

4) In the years 1987 to 2003 inclusive, how many former officers’ injury award pensions were reduced to the lowest banding upon the former officer reaching the age of 65? (A total figure only is requested, but I have no objection if you break the figures down by year)

5) In the years 2004 to 2008 inclusive, how many formal complaints have been made against officers of ACPO rank in the Hampshire Constabulary regarding matters in any way connected with the administration of reviews of police injury awards? (A total figure only is requested, but I have no objection if you break the figures down by year)

I understand that under the FOI Act, I should be entitled to a response within 20 working days. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Please note that your full reply to the above questions should be sent by e-mail to the return address shown in the heading to this message. This is because both the request and its response are published for public scrutiny on the web site through which this request has been made.

Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

Mr. John Jarman

Hampshire Police Authority

Dear Mr Jarman
Thank you for your request for information concerning police injury award pensions under FOI.

I am writing to advise you that Hampshire Police Authority does hold the information you are asking for under question 5 but it does not hold the information in the other questions.

I will respond to question 5 within the statutory time limit. In the meantime, would you please advise me whether you wish me to transfer your request to Hampshire Constabulary who may hold the information requested in your other 4 questions, or would you prefer to make a new request direct to them?

I look forward to you advice in this respect.

Your sincerely

Jean Snowsill
