This is happening everywhere.

One way of saving costs would be to get rid of the chief constables and all their retinue . They are as bad as the royal family with their artificial uniforms and personal drivers .

They'll also have extra staff acting as political advisors, equality officers, diary organisers and red-carpet- laying operatives

To be fair Mike at the moment police forces are governed by Police Authorities. very few people know who they are, they are not elected.
