The strengths for the relevant dates are set out in the table below:

Employee Group

01 May 2010

28 February 2013

28 February 2014

01 May 2015

Police Officers

64.65

56.73

124.00

Not Available

PCSOs

131.61

80.69

65.80

Total

196.26

137.42

189.80

 

At present there are no confirmed target strengths for 2015. However, under the Local Policing Model, Barnet will have 135 police officers and 42 PCSOs in Safer Neighbourhood teams.

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