Sixty-seven police officers in Suffolk have second jobs to help them pay their bills, a Freedom of Information request has revealed. 

The East Anglian Daily Times report:

Increasing numbers of Suffolk police officers are taking on second jobs to help make ends meet, force federation officials have claimed.

Suffolk Constabulary has confirmed that 67 of its officers now have approved second jobs or have other business interests, including one who is a jockey, one officer who works as a nail technician and another who is an entertainer.

The details, released under a Freedom of Information request, show that among the ranks there are also part-time driving instructors, gardeners, musicians, salesmen and, in one case, a school dinner lady.
