Police force-leave and postings
(Question No 24)
Mr Pratt asked the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, upon notice, on 7 December 2004:
(1) How many (a) sworn and (b) unsworn A.C.T. police are currently on (i) stress, (ii) sick, (iii) injured, (iv) annual, (v) maternity and (vi) long service leave;
(2) How many sworn A.C.T. police are currently on postings (a) overseas or (b) across Australia and at what sites are those officers serving.
Mr Hargreaves: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
(1) The number of sworn and unsworn A.C.T. Policing members on leave as at Tuesday 7 December 2004 is depicted in the following table.
Type of Leave
(i) Stress Leave
(ii) Sick Leave
(iv) Recreation Leave
(v) Maternity Leave
(vi) Long Service Leave
(2) (a) and (b) There are no sworn A.C.T. Policing members currently on postings overseas and across Australia funded by the A.C.T. Government. A.C.T. Policing members deployed overseas or to Australian Federal Police national postings are transferred off the establishment and are not funded by the A.C.T. Government. As a result those personnel are not included within A.C.T. Policing staffing figures for the duration of such deployments.
It is too resource intensive to determine the number of A.C.T. Policing members currently traveling interstate or overseas in connection with A.C.T. investigations for evidentiary or court purposes.
