 Therefore there are a higher number of officers at an aggregate level across London than the target.

*The target strength for STTs was agreed in March 2011 and has not changed since that time. Please note, due to administrative error, the response to MQ 3240 /2012 included a small number of inaccuracies for the target police officer strength.
