Further to your answer Question No: 3071 / 2013, that an average of 77 per cent of officers were actually on operational duty under the new policing model ward clusters shift pattern, is it correct to say they were all on duty  all at the same time  throughout all the shifts  as your answer infers, or is the correct position, that they were shared between the various shifts the officers work; and if the latter will you therefore please answer the question in an honest and not misleading way, by indicating what percentage of officers will be on shift and actually working ? Is it not the case that the figure I originally suggested to you of 20% is correct?

As was stated in my previous answer: of all officers rostered to work, an average of 77% were actually on operational duty - remaining officers were abstracted through leave, sickness, training or court. Police officers will be on duty at different times in accordance with the roster.
