Answer for MPS Falcon Funding

Answered By: 
The Mayor

FALCON only came into inception part way through the financial year 2014/15 and therefore, funding information is only available from financial year 2015/16 onwards, as set out below:

 

 

2015/16

2016/17

2017/18

Police Pay

11,921,820

15,871,873

14,231,898

 

 

FALCON forms part of a wider division within the SC&O business group and so other non-pay costs are not readily identifiable.

Falcon receives external funding through a Home Office grant from the National Cyber Security Programme, funding is only claimed against actual spend of officer and associated costs not included in the costs above.
