I understand from the Chief Constable of Cleveland police that the total costs of Operation Dollar amount to £326,400 broken down as follows:(a) wages, overtime and costs: £312,500; (b) transport: £8,800; (c) subsistence: £3,700; and, (d) office expenses: £1,400. Operation Eagle was an internal administrative arrangement by Cleveland police to handle disciplinary issues arising from Operation Lancet and the costs cannot be separately identified.
