The number of officers may vary and I am therefore answering this question in relation to a specific day. On 4 October there were 15 serving officers from police forces in England and Wales serving in Iraq and none in Afghanistan. There were also 14 individuals in Iraq either from other forces, or retired or working as police staff, and one officer from another force in Afghanistan.

Does this answer the above question?
