The Prime Minister and Home Secretary announced the recruitment of 20,000 extra officers over the next three years.

The Chancellor has since announced that the Home Office will receive £750 million for investment in policing in 2020/21, to enable delivery of the year one officer uplift. This demonstrates our commitment to giving police extra resource to protect the public and keep us all safe.

The allocation of officers across England and Wales is yet to be confirmed. Force level funding will be set out in the usual way at the provisional police settlement.
