Police Funding Discussions Ongoing

Cllr. Susan Hall, Leader of the Conservative Group, said: “As the Home Secretary said over the weekend, no decisions have been made on police budgets and discussions on new funding formulas are ongoing ahead of the Comprehensive Spending Review next month.

In addition, police forces are continuing to work together to come up with innovative ways to save money without resorting to front-line cuts – with Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire announcing a major service-sharing deal just this week.

I would also stress that Harrow’s police have done a sterling job to ensure our borough is the safest in London while still making efficiencies.”
