On 31 March 2005 the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham had 32.6 full-time equivalent community support officers (CSOs). There are currently 2,143 CSOs in the Metropolitan Police Service (MRS). The deployment of CSOs within the MRS is a matter for the Commissioner.

There were over 6,300 CSOs in England and Wales at the end of March 2005. We are making significant additional resources available through the neighbourhood policing fund to help forces increase CSO numbers to 24,000 by 2008.
