Police Uplift Programme Allocations and Establishment Impact
The following provides a summary of the police uplift allocations and projected establishments for each year:
End of Year Establishment
Year 1 - 2020/21
Year 2 - 2021/22
Year 3 - 2022/23
The total allocation over the full 3-year uplift programme originally equated to 489. As reported in the last People Paper, the force received confirmation on 6th July 2022 that its agreed ‘over allocation’ would be an additional 43 officers. As a result, this has increased the end of year 3 headcount aspiration from 195 to 238.
The force achieved both year 1 and year 2 of the uplift programme and the recruitment plan for year 3 (up to 31st March 2023) is regularly reviewed, with supporting action and activity undertaken to ensure the final year of the increased uplift is achieved.
