Due to the numerous changes to structures and operating arrangements over this period it is unfortunately not possible to provide a breakdown in the detail requested.

However, roles that have been centralised recently in Southwark include:

       Intelligence and Resources, 26 officers;

       Detention command (custody), 20 officers; and

       Proceeds of Crime (POCA), 4 officers.

It is important to note that though these officers have been centralised they will continue to provide a service to the Borough.
