star this property answer text <p><br /><del class="ministerial">The Home Office collects and publishes statistics on the number of police officers employed by each police force in England and Wales on a bi-annual basis. These figures present a picture of the workforce as at the 31 March and as at 30 September each year. These data are published in the ‘Police workforce, England and Wales’ statistical publication, which can be accessed here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/police-workforce-england-and-wales" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/police-workforce-england-and-wales</a></del></p><p><del class="ministerial">Data on the number of officers per 100,000 of the resident population, by police force area, are published on an annual basis. The latest available data on the number of police officers per 100,000 of the population can be found in Table_H4 of the data tables accompanying the main release, the latest of which can be accessed here:</del><br /><del class="ministerial"><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/police-workforce-england-and-wales-31-march-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/police-workforce-england-and-wales-31-march-2018</a></del></p><p><del class="ministerial">Data on the number of police officers are collected at Police Force Area level only, and cannot be broken at local authority level.</del></p><p><del class="ministerial">The Home Office does not hold information on response times of the police.</del></p><p><ins class="ministerial">In his Budget, the Chancellor committed to providing funding for the police in 2019/20 to cover additional pensions costs beyond the £165m which was expected at Budget 2016. </ins></p><p><ins class="ministerial">The pensions grant announced at the settlement covers the additional pension costs above £165m for the police officer scheme, and the additional pension costs above £11m for police staff. This reflects revised costings following technical changes to how the actuarial estimate of the increase in costs for officers is assessed. Total expected cost pressures arising from the valuations are now £302m for the police officer scheme and £27m for police staff.</ins></p><p><ins class="ministerial">The Government is enabling an overall increase in funding of up to £970m in police funding including precept and national priorities. This pensions funding, taken together with the additional grant funding and local precept, provides sufficient means for the police to meet cost increases, while continuing to recruit and invest in the capabilities they need.</ins></p><p><br /><ins class="ministerial">Cost pressures, including pensions, beyond 2019/20 will be considered as part of the next Spending Review where decisions on longer term police funding will be made in the round.</ins></p>
