(2) Full-time equivalent excludes those on career breaks or maternity/paternity leave.
(3) Comparable strength (excludes those on career breaks, or maternity/paternity leave). The Police Numbers Task Force (2001) recommended that a clear presentation was made of the numbers of staff employed by police forces including those seconded into the force and those on any type of long or short term absence. These new calculations were first used in 2003, and are not comparable with data prior to March 2003. The data from 2003 onwards used here are termed comparable because they have been calculated on the old basis to allow comparison.
Mrs. May: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what training police officers are required to undertake on the issues of (a) domestic violence, (b) female genital mutilation, (c) forced marriage, (d) rape, (e) stalking, (f) human trafficking and (g) honour-based violence. 
Mr. Alan Campbell: The National Police Improvement Agency (NPIA) has developed modules for training domestic abuse which are used by the police service. All new recruits and civilian staff receive this which equates to two days training and incorporates child protection training.
Some police forces have produced stand-alone training, for example, the Metropolitan Police Service Project Azore, which relates to specialist staff receiving training on FGM and Thames Valley police, South Wales and the North Eastern regional police forces who have produced training around HBV, FGM and trafficking for frontline staff, senior investigating officers (SIO), call handlers, and specialists. This training has been forwarded to the NPIA product design for assessment with a view to informing the national training.

I am clear that we need to consult widely with the public and all interested parties to set out the emerging problem, the important capability gaps that we need to address and to look at the possible solutions.
