- The government has confirmed the initial officer recruitment targets for every police force in England and Wales, which will put 6,000 more officers onto our streets by end of 2020-21 – the first year of our recruitment drive.
- The public are clear they want to see more police officers on their streets.
- This is the people’s priority and it is exactly what Boris Johnson and the Conservatives are delivering.
In Cumbria there will be 51 new officers in the first wave of the initiative and, thanks to pro-active action by Cumbria's Police and Crime Commissioner, Peter McCall, they will include the very first new officers to arrive on the beat.
The number of new police officers to be recruited in each police force area can be found here.
