From an answer given at the Lordship CAP meeting
How many Police are available in the ward and in the borough?
The Police were unable to answer this question.. They also made the point that Police officers might be front-line or support. There appears to be a certain confusion among Police officers about their own situation.
Their numbers have been reduced recently and the model of policing is continually changing.
It seems clear that although the framework of the safer neighbourhood teams remains in place, the number of police specifically linked to a ward has been reduced. In Lordship it is one PC and one PCSO.
The emphasis has changed to a larger team working in a larger area (a neighbourhood).
