Police numbers unspun

A lot of spin has been put on the issue of police numbers by Conservative Mayor Boris Johnson this morning, with an attempt to claim numbers will not go down in the light of recent violence.

But the actual budgets he is responsible for tell a different story. The Metropolitan Police Authority, which is appointed by the Mayor and receives its budget from the Mayor says that the numbers of police will reduce by 1,985 between this year (2011/12 - 53,126) and next year (2012/13 - 51,141)  in its committee papers (see full document here). In addition, all police recruitment has been frozen.

Rather than going on the Today programme and making spurious claims to back up his election chances, the Mayor should come clean with Londoners so we can get to grips with policing the capital effectively.
