Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for your e-mail of 28/12/2009 about the number of suicides or unexplained deaths of police officers in the UK.

I have carried out a search and the Home Office does not hold the information which you have requested. We collect data on the number of leavers by reason, which includes the categories ‘Death – on active duty’ and ‘Death – Other’, but these are not broken down further.

Kind regards,

Jenny Sigurdsson
