Dear British Transport Police,

I would like to know how many serving Police Officers and PCSO's have been convicted of criminal offences in the last five years and what their convictions were for and the sentences given.

And how many serving Police Officers and PCSO's have been dismissed due to being convicted of a criminal offence in the last five years.

Yours faithfully,
