While the Home Office provides the majority of Government funding to the police, decisions on how this is spent are made locally by police authorities or police and crime commissioners and their chief constables. As such, the amount that has been set aside by individual police forces in England and Wales to cover the cost of policing the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games is entirely a local decision. We do not collect or hold this information centrally.
