Seven percent of police personnel on sick leave

Sick leave among the police is exceptionally high.  In 2015, on average, seven percent of police personnel were sick at home, as against less than four percent for other sectors of the population.  Those sick are both police staffers and administrative personnel.  On average, 4,500-4,600 people are out on sick leave every day.  The Association of Police Employees has asked the new head of the national police force, Erik Akerboom, to undertake an independent investigation of the problem.
