Answered By: 
The Mayor

Camden is split into three neighbourhood areas, identified as North, South and Central. There are seven wards in the North, six in the Central and five in the South. The officer posts have been distributed according to historic crime and demand data, (including night time economy). Following the recent posting process the following allocation of officer posts was confirmed.

North - 1 Inspector, 5 Sergeants, 1 Detective Sergeant, 28 Constables and 2 Detective Constables

Central - 1 Inspector, 7 Sergeants, 1 Detective Sergeant, 56 Constables and 2 Detective Constables

South - 1 Inspector, 7 Sergeants, 1 Detective Sergeant, 61 Constables and 2 Detective Constables

There will be two PCSO posts allocated to every ward. Special constables will also be allocated to wards.
