ACPO comment on projected police job losses

08 Mar 2011

ACPO responds to estimates of police job losses over the next four years

An ACPO spokeswoman said:

"Chief officers are determined to do all they can to drive out inefficiencies and protect frontline delivery of policing.

"Every local police force is in a different funding position and we continue to work closely with the Home Office to assess information about how they are making savings and cuttings costs.

"This is a moving picture, given the imminent announcements about potential changes to police pay and pensions. But the police service will have fewer staff in future to meet the same or greater demand, and we need to think imaginatively about delivery and incentivising staff to produce higher quality."
