To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, pursuant to the Answer of 9 October 2018 to Question 173497, whether his Department is able to provide a breakdown between the number of full-time and part-time staff at the National County Lines Coordination Centre.
10 January 2019
The National County Lines Co-ordination Centre is a joint initiative between the National Crime Agency and the National Police Chiefs’ Council, supported by £3.6m of Home Office funding. It is one of our key commitments set out in the Serious Violence Strategy.
The Centre is fully operational and has around 40 staff in post. The Home Office is not involved in the set up and running of the Centre as it is an operational matter for the NCA and police.
