Our Money


 The Funding Position
Following the Autumn Statement in 2016 the funding position is better than anticipated.  This still means that efficiences are required to meet the financial gap but this is significantly less than the savings required on an annual basis since 2010.  Work has also commenced on a new funding formula which will hopefully come into place for the 2018-2019 financial year.


 What we spend the money on

Approximately 80% of the total policing budget is spent on staffing costs and facilities.

At the end of March 2017 Nottinghamshire will have an estimated 1,719 police officers, 1,125 police staff and 200 PCSOs.  These are supported by a further 79 officers that are externally funded, volunteers within the Force and the Commissioner's office.  Recruitment of officers and PCSOs has recommenced to sustain numbers as we transform to a new operating model.

As each year of cuts impacts further it becomes more difficult to identify where further savings can be achieved.  We are looking closely with other regional forces (and beyond) and with our local partners to deliver savings and maintain performance.


 Financial Information
We think it is important to be as open as possible about the way we manage the budget. This is why we will be publishing comprehensive information on expenditure, resources and decisions at the earliest opportunity to get the latest updates.

Collaboration Agreements

Nottinghamshire Police and its neighbouring forces in the East Midlands have been at the forefront of collaborative policing in the UK for more than a decade.

In fact, the East Midlands Police Collaboration Programme is the largest project of its kind in the UK, serving a population of 4.5 million people living in a region of more than 6,000 square miles, an area which incorporates landmarks such as the world famous Silverstone motor racing circuit in southern Northamptonshire, the Lincolnshire coast to the east and the Peak District National Park at its north-western edge.

Under the collaboration arrangements, the five forces of Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Nottinghamshire are working together in many different areas vital to policing, ranging from major crime investigation through to IT infrastructure.

Nottinghamshire, Northamptonshire and Leicestershire Forces and PCCs are also currently exploring further opportunities for a Tri-force collaborative approach.
