    Hart v Chief Constable of Derbyshire Constabulary EAT/0403/07 (0 other reports)

In Hart v Chief Constable of Derbyshire Constabulary EAT/0403/07, the EAT held that, although serving police officers who become disabled may be placed on restricted duties to avoid the risk of confrontational situations, it was not reasonable to expect a police force to make such an adjustment to the national training standards to allow a disabled probationary officer to qualify as a police constable.
