The Government is delivering on the people’s priorities by recruiting 20,000 additional police officers over the next three years.

In October 2019 the Home Office confirmed officer allocations for every force in England and Wales in the first year of the uplift. Durham Constabulary has been allocated 68 officers in year one of the uplift, to be recruited by the end of March 2021. Decisions on the allocation of officers for years two and three are yet to be taken.


From April 2020 the Home Office will publish quarterly updates outlining the progress on delivering the police uplift.
