Latest Bromley Police figures confirm drop in numbers.

The latest statistics from the Met confirm that the number of police available in Bromley has dropped over the last year.

The Mayor of London’s monthly report shows that in April 2011 Bromley had 505.3 police officers while at April 2012 the number was 479.2 – a drop of 26. PCSO numbers had fallen even more dramatically.  In April 20111, the borough had 147.2 PCSOs and in April 2012 just 92.7, a drop of 45.  

The overall full time police numbers have been cut from 31,947 in April 2011 to 31,825 in April 2012.

Cllr John Getgood, Leader of the Labour opposition group on Bromley Council said: “Many of us will remember Boris Johnson’s election pledge of more police on the streets of London. Where are they? Bromley residents will be particularly concerned, wondering whether there are enough police on the streets of Bromley to ensure our safety. We will continue to press Johnson to keep his promise and provide the level of security we all want and expect. “

    Do we have figures about police on the street? That’s the number that matters. Of that 505 or 479, how many are available to be doing community policing? Boris is cutting police numbers (as Ken would also have had to do to find the savings), but interesting to know whether he is doing it in the backroom or on the foot patrols. Do you have the data?
