The Minister for Policing and the Fire Service engaged with every police force in England and Wales to better understand the changing demands on policing, and how these can best be managed. We recognised that the police are seeing increased demands as more complex crime is being reported, including previously hidden crimes such as Child Sexual Exploitation and modern slavery, and from the terrorist threat.

We are helping the police to respond to changing demand with a £460m increase in overall funding in 2018/19, including increased funding for local policing through Council Tax precept.
