I remain committed to protecting police officer numbers at or around 32,000.Police officer numbers by borough will be affected by a range of factors, including recruitment timescales.

It is not currently possible to provide figures for target strengths for 2014. However, under the Local Policing Model, Camden will have 751 police officer posts overall by 2015 with 157 posts in Safer Neighbourhood Teams.
