Dear Greater Manchester Police,

Could you provide a run down of the prices charged by your force for the private hire of officers under ‘special services’

a. Cost per attending Officer/rank
b. Cost per employment of weapons - ie, how much would it cost to
hire a Constable with a firearm (does it vary in accordance with
the type of weapon? For instance is it cheaper to hire one with a
pistol than a machine gun? – again if this is applicable
c. Cost per officer on horseback if this is applicable
d. cost of attending police car

Is it possible to hire an officer on horseback/ an officer with a police vehicle?

How much money did your force make in 2010 as a result of these private hirings out?
Is it possible to have a break down event by event of how much was made, with details of the event itself?

Yours faithfully,

Agata Tina Campanella

Greater Manchester Police

Dear Greater Manchester Police,

I mean the private hire service that all constabularies offer. I understood it was called Special Service?
