We have been clear that the police will have the resources they need to fight crime and protect the public. The Metropolitan Police Service will receive over £2.5bn in direct revenue funding for 2018/19 including the £174m National and International Capital City (NICC) Grant and over £640m in precept, up by £49m from last year. In addition, the Mayor decided to provide additional funding from business rates income, meaning that the MPS will receive a total of £110m additional funding this year compared to 2017/18.

Decisions on future funding levels, including the NICC Grant, will be taken in due course noting that the Home Secretary has stated that he will be prioritising funding for the police at the next Spending Review.
