||Initial Estates impact of Proposal to Increase Police Officer Numbers
The Force has begun the preparation work to enable the delivery of increases in Police Officer numbers, over the next 3 years, in line with the proposals from the Prime Minister to increase Police Officers nationally by 20,000 FTEs. There will be a number of additional requirements, in terms of resources, equipment, IT and estates that result from this initiative. All of which are being worked through and much, if not all, are expected to be funded as part of the overall uplift in funding to support the increases in Police Officer numbers. Proposal will be developed around other areas as more information is known however it is important to recognise that, at this stage, neither the level of the funding or how many additional Police Officers will be 'allocated' to Cleveland to recruit, have been agreed.
One of the constaints on deliver is the space that is required to be able to deliver training to a signigicantly higher number of Police Officer than would normally be the case. To enable this constraint to be managed/mitigated the Force are proposing the following:
Maximise the space at the Learning and Development Centre for Training
Need for Additional Space beyond the current Estate for a limited period of time.
