The police funding formula remains the most reliable mechanism the department has to distribute core grant funding to forces. The police funding settlement for 2020/21 sets out the biggest increase in funding for the policing system since 2010, with Hampshire Constabulary receiving a total of up to £366.4m, an increase of up to £26m on 2019/20.
