Please could you provide me with a copy of the policy regarding the funding of legal fees for ex-officers who are no longer serving in any police force.
The information should include the following scenarios please:
I am most interested in information related to funding legal fees where the claim has no relation to any policing matter and the claim is made in relation to an incident that occurred after the officer had left the force and has no relation to the force or any policing matter.
It is likely you have a policy that deals with all of the above, and if this is the case I am happy at this time to dig through the policy if you can direct me to a copy.

The Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW) can confirm that it does hold this information, but we are exempting it under Section 21 Freedom of Information Act 2000 as it is reasonably accessible by other means: ICO Guidance.
The information you have asked for is available on the PFEW website (https://www.polfed.org/media/13710/pfew-rules-2018.pdf), more specifically on page 69 point item 23
