The Government announced a three year police funding settlement for policing 2008-09 to 2010-11 in December 2007. This provided a background of stability and continuity against which the police and all stakeholders could plan, in partnership, with much greater certainty and confidence.

On 26 November 2008 the Government confirmed that they are implementing the settlement for 2009-10 broadly unchanged from that announced last year.
