We released the following information on 10 August 2010 in relation to a Freedom of Information request.
The table below sets out the funding provided by the Home Office to the relevant police authorities for neighbourhood policing (substantially to help the authorities pay the salary costs of a set number of PCSOs during the years 2007-2008, 2008-2009, 2009-2010). The figures in the rightmost column for 2010-2011 note the allocations of funding made for the current year. This is in effect an excerpt from the respective Written Ministerial Statements laid before Parliament before the beginning of the year in question.
Financial Year 2007-08
Avon and Somerset
The funding for PCSOs beyond 2010-11 will be considered in the forthcoming Spending Review, within the context of wider police reform.
 These are allocated amounts payable in quarterly instalments at the end of each quarter
