Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Special Constabulary strength in the MPS on Friday 13th November 2009 was 2,899. Boroughs are responsible for deployment of Special Constables and 442 are permanently attached to Safer Neighbourhood Teams. In addition to these, a significant number of Special Constables work with a Safer Neighbourhood Team on a regular or occasional basis.

The numbers that are permanently attached to a Safer Neighbourhood Team are attached as Appendix C.
