Injury received in the execution of duty

5.—(1) A reference in these Regulations to an injury received in the execution of duty by a police officer means an injury received in the execution of that person’s duty as a constable.

(2) For the purposes of these Regulations an injury shall be treated as received by a person in the execution of his duty as a constable if—

(a)the police officer concerned received the injury while on duty or while on a journey necessary to enable him to report for duty or return home after duty, or

(b)he would not have received the injury had he not been known to be a constable, or

(c)the Board is of the opinion that the preceding condition may be satisfied and that the injury should be treated as one received in the execution of duty.

(3) In the case of a person who is not a constable but is within the definition of “police officer” in the glossary set out in Schedule 1, paragraphs (1) and (2) shall have effect as if the references to a constable were references to such a person.

(4) For the purposes of these Regulations an injury shall be treated as received without the default of the police officer concerned unless the injury is wholly or mainly due to his own serious and culpable negligence or misconduct.

(5) Notwithstanding anything in the 1988 Regulations relating to a period of service in the armed forces, an injury received in the execution of duty as a member of the armed forces shall not be deemed to be an injury received in the execution of duty as a police officer.
