7More Police Officers On The Streets
According to a 2008 census, the annual growth in police forces across the US exceeds the annual population growth of the country. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, they grew 25% between 1992 and 2008. According to a 2011 report by Forbes, the Department of Justice has allocated $3
billion to spend on necessary tools ( some of which will be highlighted below). A similar trend has unfolded in the UK where they have some of the most expensive police forces in the world and experienced growth in police force over the last decade. They, on the other hand, are reducing expenditure on police force in the coming years. Russia tops the list of largest police forces per population with 546 officers per 100,000 people.
