Clarification Sought:
Can you clarify what you asking for in Request 5: How many email accounts/employees are there within your department? Does your request relates to particular department or do you mean all of the officers and staff within the PSNI?

Clarification Received
We are referring to anyone who has an email account within all departments of the PSNI. If you can provide a breakdown by department, this would be great, but otherwise, just the total number of employees for the PSNI will do.
