    Home Office
    Brokenshire, James
    [holding answer 14 July 2011]: It is for chief officers to approve or refuse applications by serving police officers for business interests or additional employment. The Police Regulations 2003 place restrictions on the private lives of police officers designed to secure the proper exercise of the functions of a constable. Guidance on the management of business interests and additional occupations for police officers has been issued by the Association of Chief Police Officers.
