The Government have announced that £15.8bn worth of funding for the police force for 2021.
The funding will be used to provide 20,000 new police officers by 2023, focussing on issues such as counter-terrorism, county lines and sexual abuse.
The funding serves as an increase of £636m when compared to last year, showing the commitment that the Government has to improving the police force a across the nation.
Home Secretary, Priti Patel, said:
"We have asked more of the police than ever before during the coronavirus pandemic - the British people and I are extremely grateful for their dedication.
"I am absolutely committed to giving the police the resources they need - this funding package delivers on that."
Although there is no pay rise for police officers in line with the Government’s pay freeze for public sector workers, although the Home Secretary said there would be continued overtime pay for police.
