Date lodged: 20 June 2017

To ask the Scottish Government how many police officers have taken a leave of absence with the reason given by the officer as mental health or any reason that could reasonably be considered to fall within the category of mental health in each year since 2012, broken down by division and,if this data is not held centrally, whether it considers that successful implementation of the i6 programme would have enabled this information to be captured, and when it will implement an appropriate HR system that allows appropriate data capture.

The recording and management of sickness absence for police officers is a matter for Police Scotland and the Scottish Police Authority.
