The named and dedicated PC and PCSO should not be abstracted from their wards unless in exceptional circumstances.

The new operating model for the Safer Neighbourhood Policing Teams allows greater flexibility of resources across wards within a neighbourhood. It provides resilience and flexibility to boroughs when supporting aid requests and borough operations.
