(1 )This table contains full-time equivalent figures that have been rounded to the nearest whole number. Because of rounding, there may be an apparent discrepancy between totals and the sums of the constituent items.
(2) Full-time equivalent excludes those on career breaks or maternity leave.
(3) Figures for 1997 to March 2002 exclude those officers on career breaks or maternity/paternity leave. Therefore figures after March 2002 are not directly comparable with prior years.
(4) Figures from April 2002 onwards include those officers who are on career breaks or maternity/paternity leave. Therefore figures before and after that date are not directly comparable.
(5) Boundary changes on 1 April 2000 transferred some resources from the Metropolitan police to Essex, Hertfordshire and Surrey police forces.
(6) Officers per 100,000 population for City of London and Metropolitan police are combined.
