Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Writtten response received on 13/03/13.

SNTs had an allocation of 1 sergeant, 2 constables and 3 PCSOs. This will have been true on all of the dates. We have consulted on the new policing model as part of the draft Police and Crime Plan and we are now analysing the consultation responses in light of the finalised Plan.

In addition to these officers, the MPS has a range of specialist units that provide policing services across the whole of the MPS area, and therefore will also provide support in Camden. Staffing projections for 2013 at borough level have not yet been determined. However, the MPS is expecting to recruit up to 5,000 by 2016.
