To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what estimate he has made of the number of (a) (i) staff employed by, (ii) vacancies as of 31 December in and (iii) investigations conducted by each professional standards department in each police authority in England and Wales and (b) investigations into each such department in each such authority by an external oversight body in each year since 2005; and if he will make a statement.
Answer (Mr Nick Hurd)
The Home Office does not hold information on the number of staff employed or vacancies within professional standards departments. We do collect and publish information on investigations conducted by these departments, found in the misconduct section of the ‘Police workforce, England and Wales’ sta-tistical bulletin:
