asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many police officers there were in the county of Essex for 1974, 1975 and 1976.

The figures, which cover the whole of the county except those parts lying within the Metropolitan Police District, are as follows:

YearStrength at 31st December
19742,168
19752,312
19762,337
This increase is broadly in line with the overall increase in strength in the police service in England and Wales over the same period.
