England and Wales reduced police force by 5,000 in past yearThe number of police officers in England and Wales has fallen by 5,000 in the past year as the 20% cut in Whitehall funding takes effect, according to Home Office figures published on Thursday.
The official figures show that police numbers in the 43 forces in England and Wales have fallen by 9,625 since the general election and are more than on track to meet reliable estimates that the current round of public spending cuts will lead to a loss of at least 15,000 officers by 2015.
The figures mean the total number of police officers in England and Wales has fallen from a peak of 143,734 in March 2010 to 134,101 this March. This has been accompanied by a fall in the number of police community support officers from 16,918 to 14,393 and a drop in police civilian staff from 79,596 to 67,474 over the same period.
