HC Deb 26 April 2002 vol 384 cc478-9W
Mr. Vaz

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many police officers serving in the (a) Leicestershire and (b) Nottinghamshire constabularies were previously employed in the Metropolitan Police. [46211]

Mr. Denham

I am told by the Chief Constable of Leicestershire Constabulary (David Wyrko) that there are 65 officers in the force who previously served with the Metropolitan Police.

I am told by the Chief Constable of Nottinghamshire (Stephen Green) that information about the previous forces of officers who have joined on transfer is not routinely collated centrally. The force does, however, have a record that 12 officers transferred into the force from the Metropolitan Police in 2001–02.
