Dear Humberside Police,

Please can you tell me the cost of policing for allowing the
Olympic Torch to pass through the area covered by the council?

If possible, could you breakdown the costs for each district council?

I would like the information on an Excel Spreadsheet. If you require
further clarification, please let me know.

Yours faithfully,

Gesbeen Mohammad

Dear Humberside Police,

Could you clarify the costs below? I do not understand exactly what they mean or what they are for?

Humberside
£108,
621.71
28%
£157,
979.14
£49,
357.43

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Gesbeen Mohammad

Green, James 8935,

To clarify:

Total expenditure for Humberside Police of £108, 621.71

was for:

Staffing Costs: £46, 389.85
Travel, Hotel/ Accommodation & Subsistence Costs: £16, 414.62 Helicopter Usage Costs: £38, 248.66
Other Costs: £7, 568.58 Total: £108, 621.71

The figure of £157, 979 was the 'cost' to Humberside Police as part of the Regional 'cost' (sharing of resources etc). You will see the refund equates to the difference between 'costs' and 'total expenditure'.
