This briefing aims to provide a clear, soundly sourced analysis of income sources and public spending on police forces in England and Wales since 1998. Given the substantial public investment in policing, and the range of interest in police activity, it is surprising how little information is readily accessible about what is spent on police forces, where this money comes from and what it is spent on. Based on official sources for each police force, this briefing aims to address this significant gap by analysing expenditure data over the decade 1998/1999 to 2008/2009 to paint a long-term, national picture.
