Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written response received on 1 July 2013.

Full Time sworn police officers, special constables, PCSOs and non-PCSO civilian staff data is available on the London datastore at:

Below is the sergeant data:

Barnet Mar 2013 Mar 2012 May-10 Police Sergeants 86.68 97.48 110.73

At present, there are no confirmed target strengths for 2014, although there is a target to hire an extra 5,000 special constables by 2016. I remain committed to protecting police officer numbers at around 32,000 together with frontline delivery. However, police officer numbers by borough will be affected by a range of factors, including recruitment timescales. Under the Local Policing Model, Barnet will have 564 police officer posts overall by 2015 with 135 posts in Safer Neighbourhood teams.
