16 August 2011

The Universities’ Police Science Institute (UPSI)


Local police services will take the biggest hit from Government cuts to the policing budget, new analysis by Cardiff’s Universities Police Science Institute shows Government grant for local policing will fall by £1.36bn, or 14 per cent, over the four years to 2014-15. The author, Dr Timothy Brain, former Chief Constable of Gloucestershire and ACPO lead on finance,  also challenges claims by ministers that the cuts can be largely absorbed by ‘back office’ efficiency savings, with little impact on front line services.
