Reed do not hold the information on whether a current temporary agency worker has previously been employed as a member of police staff in the MPS. However upon initial application to register with Reed there is a check as to whether the individual has been employed by the MPS within the last 5 years.  Police staff who have left the MPS under an early departure scheme (i.e. with compensation) are not eligible to be employed as a member of agency staff working in the MPS for a five year period.
