Question from John D Bullock
When funds are so tight and police numbers are being cut, how is it possible to justify spending money on cars and buildings, whilst taking police off the streets?
Buildings and cars are an indulgence and a misuse of public funds. We have had a spate of new buildings of police stations, costing hundreds of millions.
There is ongoing expenditure on top of the range 4 wheel drive vehicles which is an obscene indulgence.
Police cars are well maintained and should be made to last until the financial cuts are over.
As in France the police should have basic transport to reach incidents. Traffic vehicles and ARVs can be fast small Fords or similar, not £50k off roaders.
Big boys toys at public expense is difficult to comprehend.
