The number of officers with less than 2 years' experience is outlined in the attached excel table.

In accordance with my commitment to maintain overall police officer numbers at 32,000 the MPS has just completed a large scale campaign to recruit 5,000 new police constables.

The excel table reflects the arrival of these new police constables.
