Cleveland Police has supported a number of Mutual Aid deployments between Apr 2017 – July 2017.
These operations were not part of the budget set at the start of the year.
In line with national guidelines ,the provision of Mutual Aid is charged to the Force to whom it is given.
Cleveland Police has incurred expenditure that was not provided for when setting the 2017/18 budget in providing Mutual Aid, of £45,236.16.
The total amount to be reimbursed to Cleveland for providing these services is £55,722.62
This takes into account the full costs of the services provided.
The Mutual Aid deployments have been as follows:
Sporting Event – Grimsby v Doncaster – Humberside Police (£4,937.57)
Sporting Event – Scunthorpe v Milwall – Humberside Police (£19,237.02)
Operational Support – Operation Newtown/Parklife – Greater Manchester Police (£9,253.29)
Protest/March – Operation Boxford – Greater Manchester Police (£4,627.35)
Operational Support – Operation Custodian – Greater Manchester Police (£6,391.59)
Sporting Event – Sheffield Wednesday v Glasgow Rangers – South Yorkshire Police (£11,275.80)
Therefore, Cleveland Police is requesting the release of £45,250, from income to be received by the PCC, to pay for additional costs incurred in providing Mutual Aid.
This will result in an increase in budget available to the Chief Constable of £45,250. In turn, this will ensure that the provision of Mutual Aid has not reduced the funding available for Policing within Cleveland.
The ‘over-recovery’ of income of £10,472.62 will lead to an underspend during 2017/18 and will be made available to support future financial plans.
This supports the PCC’s priority of Investing in our Policing.
