Rest Days owed to Police Officers
Following on from several radio interviews today and pre-records yesterday please see figures about the no of outstanding rest days locally and nationally.
I have talked about the impact on officers health and well-being when they can't get their due rest days and when further rest days are cancelled. The lack of resources both locally and nationally for officers to deliver the service we all want to provide and yet we continue to all do our very best every day and that we need an occupational health that is fit for purposes so officers can receive early intervention.
To give you an idea today we have:
49 officers on sick leave of more than 28 days and 73 police officers in total currently on the sick
