The Complaints and Discipline database does not hold details of officers investigated for criminal offences. The table below therefore shows officers who resigned between 1st January 2012 and 31st March 2015 and who were the subject of an arrest, summons, charge or criminal court proceedings. Officers have been taken to include special constables.

In January 2012 new regulations came into force which stops police officers from resigning or retiring if they are subject to an allegation that could lead to dismissal.
