I would like to make a Freedom of Information request relating to promotions from C/Inspector to Supt or Temporary Supt in the PSNI. I am trying to discern general trends on the average timelines of promotion of C/Inspectors who apply for promotion to the next rank.
Please could you provide me with the following information?
From April 2013 to date, how many officers of C/Inspector rank have either been promoted substantively or temporarily to the rank of Superintendent?
Of those officers who have been promoted to Superintendent (temporarily or substantively), please could you break down, in terms of year categories, the time period from when they were substantively promoted to C/Inspector, and being either temporarily promoted or substantively promoted to Superintendent? Where an officer may have been temporarily promoted, and later promoted substantively, please use the earlier date.
Please could you present the information in the following manner?

4 years to less than 6 years
