|(1) Government funding includes general grant (Home Office police grant, ODPM/Welsh Assembly Government revenue support grant and national non-domestic rates). It also includes specific grants: Crime Fighting Fund, Rural Policing Fund, Basic Command Unit funding, Community Support Officer funding (including, for 2004-05 and 2005-06, Round 1 of the Neighbourhood Policing Fund), Airwave, DNA Expansion Programme, Street Crime Initiative, Special Priority Payments and capital grants. (2) Source for resident population figures: Department for Communities and Local Government, and Welsh Assembly Government as used in the calculation of the police funding settlements. (3) South Wales had a reduction in grant provision to ensure it received a comparable general grant increase as police authorities in England. The amount South Wales was deducted (£4.2 million) was paid out to the other three Welsh police authorities. (4) Top-up grantWelsh Assembly Government does not operate a grant damping mechanism for revenue support grant/national non-domestic rates. The Home Secretary has, since 2003-04, provided additional funding to ensure Welsh police authorities receive at least a minimum floor increase in grant in line with English authorities. (5) Adjusted for comparison purposes following the transfer of pensions and security funding from general grant in 2006-07 and the 2003-04 Amending Report repayments.|
