I will arrive at a budget using the following scenario:

1 inspector

1 admin

2 sergeants

12 constables

Constables £21000

Sergeant £30000

Admin £15000

Inspector £38000

12 constables at £21,000 = £252,000 x3 shifts

£252,000 x3 = £756,000

2 sergeants at £30,000 = £60,000 x3 shifts

£60,000 x3 = £180,000

1 Admin = £15,000

1 Inspector = £38,000

Total expenditure on wages = £989,000 pa (x5 for 5 year period)


I will be needing three cars at my police station. Two of which I will purchase and the third will be a sponsor car.

Purchase of two cars = £20,000 x 2 = £40,000

Running of cars = £5,000

Total expenditure on cars = £40,000

Running of cars = £5,000 pa (x5 for 5 year period)

Equipment and Administration costs
