Table One [at Appendix W] represents the number of officers convicted and shows whether their pension rights were reviewed by MOPAC.  (MSC officers have no pension rights so are marked as N/A).

Please note the number of officers convicted has gone up slightly (i.e. from 178 to 187), this is due to the data being updated.

Of the 27 officers who had their pension rights reviewed, the Table 2 [at Appendix W] shows the outcome:

It should be noted that a police officer's pensions can only be pursued if it is MOPAC's view that police officer's offence was committed in connection with his/her police service and the Home Secretary issues a certificate of forfeiture.  Certificates are issued where the Home Secretary considers the criminal offence to be either gravely injurious to the interests of the State or liable to lead to serious loss of confidence in the public service.
