On The Sick.

"HUNDREDS of Scots police are calling in sick every day - costing taxpayers at least £23million a year. An investigation reveals that 153,774 days were lost to sickness last year, with 420 officers off on an average day. And the true figure could be even higher because our study is based on just six of the country's eight forces."

That's a lot of police time and Mr Smith suspects that all of it can't be accounted for by officers being off having been injured in the course of duty.
