Answered By: 
The Mayor

I have been informed that the amount of work required to calculate the actual collective number of hours spent on overtime makes the task impractical. However, please find Police Officer overtime spend for the last five years in the table below. It should be noted that outturns also include expenditure incurred on national and international incidents.
