Gordon Prentice: How many serving police officers in England have a criminal record.
Gordon Prentice: My spies tell me that hundreds of serving police officers have a criminal record. My question is about applicants with a criminal record, who can be rejected by the chief constable concerned without the chief constable giving reasons.
