Please could you let me know when I can expect a response to the question I asked you in September 2012, 2453/2012, about the number of fully warranted police officers on the streets?

My manifesto committed to maintaining the number of officers 'on the street' during my term in office. This was a reference to the overall police officer strength.

The Police Officer strength at 6 May 2012 was 31,984 Full Time Equivalents. After excluding seconded officers and those on maternity leave from the Operational Policing Measure analysis shows 24,021 (76.4%) to be in Operational roles, 6,578 (20.9%) to be in Operational Support roles and 859 (2.7%) to be in Organisational Support roles.
