The table below sets out the target* and actual strengths at 31 May 2013 for the Safer Neighbourhood Teams across London.

*NB - The targets are those prior to the implementation of the Local Policing Model (LPM) whilst the actual strength reflects the gradual transition to the LPM with new Neighbourhood Policing structures. Information is taken from the MPS corporate HR system.

Details of individual SNTs are provided in the spreadsheet attached as Appendix 1.

Lambeth borough has been piloting a new model of response policing. This model incorporates the SNTs and it is not possible to separate out sergeants. Consequently, the HR records show no Sergeants attached to SNTs in Lambeth compared to the target of 21.
