At present we have no confirmed target strengths for 2014. However, under the Local Policing Model, Camden will have 751 budgeted police officer posts overall by 2015 with 157 posts in Safer Neighbourhood teams.

The new Local Policing Model rolled out during 2013 will put in place new neighbourhood policing structures, but does not afford a direct comparison in terms of overall numbers with current structures at borough or Ward level. Moreover, borough policing is supported by a range of other specialist resources provided by the MPS overall, which are not captured in the above figures.
