Answered By: 
The Mayor

Data on PCSO staffing levels can be found on the www.police.uk for each Safer Neighbourhood Team. This shows the current strength of each Safer Neighbourhood Team.

Publishing vacancies and strengths by ward on a regular basis could be perceived as operational intelligence about police presence. That could be of use to those who wish to cause harm. Safer transport team staffing levels are also found on the MPS website http://www.met.police.uk/transport/the_teams.html.

The MOPAC will work with the MPS on the publication of parts 4, 7 and 8 on the London Datastore.
