Police officer who tripped over blankets awarded £16,610 compensation
There were six payouts to officers bitten by their own police dogs, with one claimant picking up £17,826
A police force has paid out almost £450,000 to officers and civilian staff for bizarre accidents on duty.
One got £16,610 for tripping over blankets while chasing a criminal.
Another won £43,000 for a back injury after a slip on ice.
A worker’s fall over some photocopy paper cost £8,130, a Freedom of Information request revealed.
And there were six payouts to officers bitten by their own police dogs, with one claimant picking up £17,826.
Yesterday 43 Nottinghamshire Police payouts from 2007 to 2012 were rapped by local Tory MP Mark Spencer.
He said: “We have lost the plot over what we think it is acceptable to claim for.”
The county’s Police Commissioner Paddy Tipping added: “Officers know they can be injured.
“The force must take a firm but fair line.”
But Phil Matthews of the Police Federation said: “Our members should have the same rights as anyone else.”
