Please note that year on year comparison of police numbers, in isolation, is not comparing like with like. A number of functions that were performed by borough officers in 2010 are now performed by centralised units in order to provide a more efficient service. An example of this would be instead of 32 telephone crime reporting bureaus, one for each borough; there is now only 1 single central unit.

Backroom staff from each borough were drawn away to perform these functions and are therefore no longer shown on borough strengths.

Front line police officer posts. i.e. Response teams and SNTs have remained consistent. There are no available expected figures for the 30th September 2013.
