The Government has committed to increasing the number of police officers by 20,000 over the next three years.

The Home Office has confirmed the recruitment targets for every force in England and Wales in the first year of the uplift, and 6,000 additional officers will be recruited in forces across England and Wales by the end of March 2021. Details of the allocations in years two and three are still to be determined. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/home-office-announces-first-wave-of-20000-police-officer-uplift
