How do I report sick?
If an officer is unable to report for work due to sickness or injury, they are responsible for personally informing their supervisor of the reason for their absence. This should also include a likely date of return, and any action they are taking to overcome the condition (e.g. visiting their doctor).

This should be done the day or days before the officer is due to work their next shift, or as soon as possible after the start of the working day. It is helpful if the officer can provide a contact telephone number for the duration of their absence. Other than in exceptional circumstances, the message should not be passed to the supervisor by a partner, family member, colleague, voice mail or text message.
