At present the MPS have no confirmed target strengths for 2015. However, under the Local Policing Model, Barnet will have 564 police officer posts overall by 2015 with 135 posts in Safer Neighbourhood teams.

Borough policing is supported by a range of other specialists resources provided by the MPS overall, which are not captured in the above figures.

Comparisons cannot be made between the Local Policing Model now in place and previous structures in place at borough or Ward level.
