The MPS is in the process of moving its data systems. During this period of transition, data on abstraction of dedicated ward officers is only available for 24 boroughs. The remaining boroughs will have moved to the new system by May 2014.

Between January and February 2014 there were 29,899 working shifts. Dedicated ward officers were only away from their boroughs for a total of 262 shifts. This means they were engaged with local policing 99.1% of the time.
