Lincolnshire Police are Underfunded – The Facts

Lincolnshire is the lowest funded out of the 43 police forces.

A person in Lincolnshire receives -29% less than the average across England and Wales.

If Lincolnshire was funded to the average per capita (£235) - the county would unlock £40,000,000 more per year.

Top 5: Lowest funded

Lincolnshire - 1 - £182 per capita
Humberside - 2 - £185 per capita
Essex - 3 - £187 per capita
Suffolk - 4 - £188 per capita
Bedfordshire - 5 - £192 per capita

Due to our size, our proximity to the coast and largely being rural Lincolnshire has very specific needs which are being ignored by Westminster. The people of Lincolnshire deserve safe streets, a responsive police force and adequate funding...

Top 5: Highest funded

Nottinghamshire - 5 - £286 per capita
Hampshire - 4 - £297 per capita
Leicestershire - 3 - £ 305 per capita
Dorset - 2 - £354 per capita
Greater London - 1 - £370 per capita

It is the first principle of a good government to protect its citizens - without extra money, Lincolnshire Police is going to have to make some very difficult decisions.

If Lincolnshire received the same amount of money per capita as:

Derbyshire - £55,000,000 extra per year
North Wales  - £58,000,000 extra per year
Nottinghamshire - £78,000,000 extra per year
Leicestershire - £92,000,000 extra per year
London  - £141,660,400 extra per year

Lincolnshire Police receive a drop in the ocean from Westminster, the stats prove how our voices have been forgotten and how we’re being treated like a second class county.
