Answer for Officer rest days

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The table below show the cancelled rest days for Territorial Policing and Specialist Crime & Operations. Bank holidays and the Notting Hill Carnival (NHC) affect the figures considerably and so an additional column has been added to show the monthly total excluding these specific dates.

The total number of cancelled rest days in 2016 was 214,929. Excluding bank holidays and NHC the total is 172,976.

The total number of cancelled rest days in 2017 to date is 179,553. Excluding bank holidays and NHC the total is 140,647.

The table includes days that are cancelled by both individual officers and those cancelled by the MPS. The MPS systems do not allow the two to be separated.

Rest days could be cancelled for a variety of reasons such as court attendance, largescale operations, unplanned operations or simply officers' on call roster.
