The precise list of police forces expected to be involved in policing in London over the summer of 2012 is not finalised, but is likely to include most forces. Mutual aid is a common feature of major policing operations in the UK. Requests for mutual aid will be proportionate to the size and capacity of each force, and donor forces will be reimbursed in accordance with the prevailing arrangements.
