Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Neither the average number of officers required or an estimate of cost per raid is available. Officer numbers and associated costs are variable and will be dependant based on a risk assessment which will take account of a number of factors including the nature of the raid and the number of people expected to be in the property.
