Thank you for your email dated 11 April 2011 in which you made a request for access to certain information which may be held by Northumbria Police.

How many police officers have ‘diversity’ in their job title or description – this could be for example Diversity Director, Diversity Officer, Diversity Coordinator, Head of Diversity etc. or somebody with joint responsibility for diversity?
Could you please list the titles of those from Qs 1 and 2, and indicate their salary (or salary range) along with their status (police staff vs police officer).
