Labour Party: More and more frontline police officers will be lost, and services will suffer, because of these cuts that go too far and too fast - Cooper

Labour Party press release

Yvette Cooper MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, commenting on the
National Audit Office report which highlights a £500 million shortfall in
planned savings in police budgets, said:

“This is why over 16,000 police officers are being lost in communities
throughout England and Wales. We have warned for some time that police
forces face serious funding gaps because of the Tory-led Government’s
policies.

“The Home Secretary chose to cut police budgets by 20%, or £2 billion
rather than the £1 billion supported by Labour and independent police
experts. And by demanding the steepest cuts in the first few years, the
Government has made it extremely difficult for Chief Constables to plan
sustainable savings over time.

“As the Home Office are clearly aware of the damage they are causing the
Home Secretary should urgently rethink. More and more frontline police
officers will be lost, and services will suffer, because of these cuts that
go too far and too fast.”
