(1) Full-time equivalent. All officers less staff on career breaks or maternity/paternity leave (comparable with previously published figures)
(2 )This and other tables contain 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.
(3 )Police strength data are available by financial year running from 1 April to 31 March. Recorded crime data are available by calendar year up to 1997 and thereafter on a financial year basis. Additionally, the coverage was extended and counting rules revised from 1989-99. Therefore, these figures are not comparable with those for later years.
