To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many police officers have received (a) redundancy payments and (b) pension enhancements since 2010; and what the cost of each such type of payment is.

The Home Office does not hold this information.

Decisions regarding the award and administration of both redundancy and pension payments to police officers are made locally in accordance with the appropriate police regulations. It is the responsibility of Chief Constables, working with Police and Crime Commissioners, to ensure that they manage their resources appropriately to deliver value for money to the public.
