The additional cost to policing in 2020-2021 of employer contributions to police pensions is currently estimated to be £316 million.
The proposed 2020/21 police funding settlement increases funding by £1.1 billion to £15.2 billion. This includes general Government grant funding, pensions grant, council tax precept and investment in national priorities. This substantial increase in funding will enable forces to meet their genuine financial pressures as well as to invest in the recruitment of additional officers.
Decisions on funding for future years are a matter for the next Spending Review.
