Speaking against cuts to police numbers
Steve spoke out against cuts to police numbers in the Police Funding debate on 8th December 2010.
Stephen McCabe (Birmingham, Selly Oak, Labour)
Apart from the cuts, which will reduce the overall number of police, I understand that the CSR will mean a freeze on recruitment, the likely application of regulation A19, which will get rid of the more experienced officers, and a freeze on pay. Do they sound like the conditions for a highly motivated, well performing police force?
