Please find the requested figures in the table below. Note that counts relate to the minimum number of officers required for each team: one Sergeant, two Constables and three Police Community Support Officers (six PCSOs for wards with populations of 14,000+). Hammersmith and Fulham have extra staff for the 24/7 Pilot. Figures do not include Partnership Funded, Government Security Zones or Safer Transport Teams. Some boroughs may have larger workforces than their budgeted target. This is because of Local Authorities funding extra PCSOs. Also in some areas there are extra PCSOs who have been recruited to work on Victim Focus Desks and Station Front Counters but are currently gaining experience in the Safer Neighbourhood teams.
