Refer to 2) (b)

It is too resource intensive to answer this question as it would require searching the ACT Magistrates Court database for all successful convictions involving offensive and dangerous weapons crimes and would involve manual data extraction and examination of individual case records.

Police force—leave(Question No 131)

Mr Pratt asked the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, upon notice, on 15 February 2005:

Further to the response to question on notice No. 24 (Hansard, 9 December 2004, page 332) which stated that a total of 98 sworn and unsworn ACT Policing Members were on leave as at Tuesday 7 December, is this a high amount of members to be on leave at any one time;

How did ACT Policing cover the shifts of those 98 members on leave at one time;

What was the (a) total and (b) average number of members on leave for each month of 2004.

Mr Hargreaves: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

No.

ACT Policing manages all planned leave and long term unplanned leave to ensure the ACT establishment and operational capacity to deliver the community policing function is not affected. In mission critical areas, overtime shifts are offered to accommodate short term unplanned leave within certified agreement requirements.

(3)(a) It is too resource intensive to provide the total number of members on leave per month as this would involve daily calculations. Given the varying amounts of time a member can be absent from the workplace, compiling multiple types of leave (planned and unplanned) taken over a month as a single average does not accurately reflect the productivity or availability of members across that month. Some planned leave such as maternity or long service leave may be temporarily backfilled by appointing term transfers or non-ongoing staff members to fill vacancies. These arrangements accord with customary public service practices.

(3)(b) See 3(a)
