Dear Hampshire Constabulary,
I am looking for information on the number of retired police officers currently employed by the force in civilian roles.
Specifically, could you please provide me with the following details:
1. The total number of retired police officers who have been re-employed by the force in civilian roles in the financial years 2007/08, 2008/09 and 2009/10 and up to the latest possible date in 2010. This should be broken down by each financial year.
2. The cost of this employment to the force. This should be broken down by each financial year.
3. For each retired police officer now on the civilian payroll, their last job title when a serving officer, and their current job title. The date of their re-employment should also be given.
Please can you tell me when you will be responding to my request?
