The Home Office has been working closely with policing to support planning for a range of scenarios around our exit from the EU, including leaving without a deal. Any local policing body whose force is facing significant costs as a result of EU Exit may currently apply for additional funding through the Police Special Grant. We are considering an alternative mechanism for any future requests.

Decisions on the allocation of police resources within Lambeth are a matter for the Metropolitan Police Commissioner.
