Police Administration Survey

I have a researcher looking for the educational attainment of new recruits for the Toronto Police Service for the last 12 years. The data appears to be collected by the Supplemental Police Administration Survey. Does anyone have any advice on where I can find this? Would this be a custom tabulation?

Indeed, the data would have to be acquired through a custom tabulation.

A few clarifications:

*Although the researcher is looking for data for the last 12 years, the data for education only started to be collected in 2012, and for the Toronto Police Service, data is only available from 2014 onward (2014 – 2016).

*If the researcher is interested, the concept of “new recruits” should be clarified; from what I’ve gathered, the survey collected information on recruit graduates (paid personnel engaged in a training program); it does not include recruits not getting paid for their training (which happens).

*There are some small numbers, which would result in a moderate amount of suppression. Therefore, data for 2014, 2015 and 2016 could be provided with these suppressions.
