Written response received on 31 May 2013.

There are currently 307 PCs 'acting up' as Sergeants. The following table provides a breakdown by business group and Borough Command Unit.

The level of 'acting-up' reflects the fact that the MPS is currently in transition to the new One Met Model. This is being implemented in stages, starting with the Local Policing Model in Territorial Policing. The implementation of the Model in other areas of the MPS over coming months will release supervisors to fill other substantive Sergeant posts.
