Mr. Ron Brown
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many police officers resigned from forces in Scotland during 1980 and 1981 following disciplinary proceedings.
§ Mr. Allan Stewart
In 1980 two police officers were dismissed and four were required to resign as an alternative to dismissal: in 1981 no officer was dismissed and nine were required to resign. Information is not available centrally about the numbers of officers who may have resigned voluntarily after disciplinary hearings.
