Police cuts are not the way forward

Having been involved with the police for many years, including 12 years as a Councillor, I have always supported the work of the police.

To listen to David Cameron and George Osborne going on about the financial economy situation; they should stop pumping billions into EU.

They are living on Cloud Cuckoo Land.

The new shift patterns put more pressure on officers. Cuts in the police budgets are not the way forward.

They require more funds, more officers on the streets, less paperwork and the courts to back them up with more power.

Let’s have more common sense and not undermine senior police officers.
