The Changing Shape of the Police Service

Today sees the release of the latest set of Home Office stats showing that Theresa May is well on course with her project to destroy the Police Service of England and Wales.

These figures make me laugh, they never quite correlate with the previous set of figures, not different by much, but surely they should be identical?

I have produce for your delectation a series of charts showing how the Police Services of England and Wales has changed since 2003.  I could go back further but it’s a right royal pain to get the figures before 2003 and I’m not sure exactly what purpose would be served by it.  Also the Home Office keep changing the format in which they release their data, making Copy and Paste a right royal ball-ache too.

Please bear with me, they take a while to produce, I have attached the first, the overall picture for 43 Forces excluding BTP and Central Secondments, and I will add the others gradually as time allows.  Apologies in advance to my Welsh friends, they will have to wait till last.

43 Forces
