Police force amalgamation will result in job losses

Monday, 16 December 2013

As Hertfordshire's police and crime commissioner, David Lloyd, has revealed a merger between three neighbouring county's forces will result in redundancies.

In addition, he stated that “future of policing should not be reduced to a sterile debate over officer numbers”.
