Prepared internally, no external costs.
Please provide me with the number of Police officers (including senior officers) that have been medically signed off work for more than 6 months and have continued to receive their full pay whilst on sick leave in the last 10 years?
If you are unable to provide me with this information for the last 10 years then please provide me with this information for the last 5 years.
The responding department are unable to provide the data over the last 10 years due to having no centralised record of this data.
Fewer than 10 Police Officers have continued to receive full pay whilst on sick leave in the last five years. Disclosure control has been applied to the figure, further to Article 25 (Personal Information) of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011, to avoid the potential identification of individuals.
Article 25 Personal information
(1) Information is absolutely exempt information if it constitutes personal data of which the applicant is the data subject as defined in the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018.
(2) Information is absolutely exempt information if –
(a) it constitutes personal data of which the applicant is not the data subject as defined in the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018; and
(b) its supply to a member of the public would contravene any of the data protection principles, as defined in that Law.
(3) In determining for the purposes of this Article whether the lawfulness principle in Article 8(1)(a) of the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018 would be contravened by the disclosure of information, paragraph 5(1) of Schedule 2 to that Law (legitimate interests) is to be read as if sub-paragraph (b) (which disapplies the provision where the controller is a public authority) were omitted.
