Answer for Richmond Park policing

Answered By: 
The Mayor

A bid for £8.8 million for policing the Royal Parks in 2015/16 has been submitted to the Home Office and reflects the cost of policing the parks in line with the previous policing model that was in place up until 2013/14. An announcement on the grant is due in December. The future policing model will be reviewed to ensure it continues to align with future grant funding.
