Specialised railway policing put at risk by Scottish Government06 September, 2016
Circular 16 /10
21 October 2010
We are now aware of the budget reductions being faced by Home Department Forces, whilst less than the rumoured 25% the 4% reduction per annum that has been announced will still lead to significant cutbacks especially when inflation is factored into the calculation.
We await confirmed figures from our Police Authority on the reduction in budget our Force will face over the coming years and the consequences for us. We are aware of a proposal discussed by the Police Authority but to our knowledge no final decision has as yet been made.
