Police Officer and Police Staff Strength

16 January 2007

Report of the Chief Constable



Contact: Mrs Maureen ADAMSON, Director of Personnel, Ext 79 3210

1. Strength Report (Appendix 1)

1.1. The chart attached at Appendix 1 shows police officer and police staff strength
     and availability against budgeted strength as at 31 December 2006. All figures
     are ‘full time equivalents’ whereby part time officer / staff hours have been
     aggregated to show full time strength.

1.2. The long term sickness statistics set out in Column 7 are calculated for 30
     November 2006.

1.3. The actual strength figure for staff (Column 3) exceeds the budgeted strength
     figure (Column 2). This is because the actual strength figure includes
     temporary staff covering for absences due to sickness or maternity leave and
     those funded from external sources like the Home Office or Community
     Partnerships.

1.4. The actual strength figure for PCSOs (Column 3) is less than budgeted
     strength (Column 2) because recruitment is still ongoing. The force aims to
     have recruited to the remaining vacancies by 30th April 2007.

2. Police Officers - Strength Forecast 2006/2007 (Appendix 2)

2.1. The chart attached at Appendix 2 shows budgeted and actual police officer
     strength to 30 November 2006 and includes forecast figures for the rest of the
     financial year.

2.2. Budgeted strength is currently 3757 posts. Actual strength may exceed
     budgeted strength in some months because a number of posts are funded by
     the Special Projects Budget or external sources including the Home Office and
     Community Partnerships.

3. Officers seconded overseas

3.1. There is currently one officer seconded overseas, seconded to Basra.

4. Recommendations
