  1. After sustained period of cuts, the APCC fears funding shortfall may lead to rise in crime, hurting police and state legitimacy https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/oct/29/england-and-wales-police-in-need-of-13bn-to-tackle-and-terrorism?CMP=twt_gu
  2. A few recent articles regarding the cuts have quotes which point to a possible change in the Home Office's stance on police funding. It isn't very clear but hopefully the Chief's that they are apparently consulting with, will tell them the truth, and they will be listened to at long last (unlikely as the Gov seem to have their fingers in their ears). The quotes read as "we didn't make a mistake by cutting police budgets, it's just that times have changed and terrorism is eating up resources". Most recent article: https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/jul/18/police-missing-terroris
  3. Changes to the way government money is allocated to police forces in England and Wales will be delayed, Police Minister Mike Penning has said. He apologised to the Commons for a "statistical error" in a new formula which assesses population size and other data to calculate funding. The issue has caused "a great deal of concern to police forces", he admitted. The proposed changes for 2016/17 will now be delayed, Mr Penning said. The Home Office did not say for how long. Mr Penning said the government "regrets" the mistake and apologised to MPs and to all 43 p
  4. Turning on M1 speed cameras permanently and having sponsored uniforms and cars could help bolster a cash-strapped force's coffers, a police and crime commissioner has said. Full story here

    You may be aware that the Home Office has been conducting a review into the way in which the central Government policing budget is allocated across forces with a view to developing a funding formula that is fit-for-purpose and sustainable. Policing partners and the public have been consulted and earlier this month chief constables and PCCs received a letter from Policing Minister Mike Penning MP outlining the proposed refinements to the way in which central Government policing budgets will be allocated. I cannot express enough my disappointment to see that under the latest proposal for central
  6. The Police and Crime Commissioner for Bedfordshire is warning of "funding Armageddon" for the county's force. Source
  7. Hampshire's PCC has been publicising the consultation for the changing in the funding formula across the UK. This could potentially have significant impacts to the cuts in your force, so I suggest completing the survey. In particular, I strongly agree with the PCC that the funding arrangements need to be decided soon so that forces have certainty in their restructuring over the next 5 years. You can't have a well planned transition of how you police without knowing what the cuts are for each year. The goal posts are simply floating away they're fluid at the moment. Details from Hants PCC he
  8. Police force threatens to sue Theresa May over funding plans One of Britain’s largest police forces is threatening to launch a high court action against the home secretary as analysis reveals that Theresa May is secretly planning a major switch in millions of police funding from city forces to county constabularies, the Guardian can disclose. West Midlands police are considering mounting the legal challenge to the way in which May has conducted a consultation exercise on a new police funding formula being carried out without the Home Office disclosing how each force is likely to be affected.
  9. Police Scotland have been ridiculed for spending taxpayers' cash re-branding their helicopter in Gaelic. Nationalist MP Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh tweeted a photo of herself sitting in the helicopter which bears the name of Police Scotland in the ancient Scots language. For full story please use the following link http://dailym.ai/1Unvb1F I actually thought this was a joke at first.
  10. Chief Constable Colette Paul wrote to the Home Office in February this year to raise concerns about the future sustainability of Bedfordshire Police as it faces the next Spending Review. The Home Office has responded by offering to send a Finance and Strategy Team into the force for two days to explore further the financial situation. Chief Constable Paul said: "This visit is good news. It will afford us the opportunity to provide the Home Office with first-hand insight into the demands we face and the difficulties we have as an under-funded force. "Bedfordshire is prepared to take its fair sh
  11. Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police announce successful second bid for Police Innovation Funding https://www.westmercia.police.uk/article/9877/Warwickshire-Police-and-West-Mercia-Police-announce-successful-second-bid-for-Police-Innovation-Funding
  12. The people of Bedfordshire have voted ‘no’ in the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Referendum, which asked the county’s residents to pay an additional 15.85% increase in the Police Precept element of the council tax. A ‘yes’ vote would have generated an additional £4.5m per year for Bedfordshire Police, who receive the second lowest level of government funding, despite facing demand akin to those seen in large metropolitan force areas. Bedfordshire Police Chief Constable, Colette Paul, said: “We will continue to do the best we can with the resources we’ve got to build a stronger community polic
