Access control is the answer when fewer bobbies on the beat
The number of police on street patrol would be reduced in the wake of the government’s public sector spending cuts, one of Britain’s most senior police officers warned. “Sadly we will lose people,” Sir Hugh Orde said ahead of his speech to the association’s annual conference. On BBC Radio 4, president of the Association of Chief Police Officers Sir Hugh said that some services will have to be reduced, adding: “Our role is to make sure they are the less critical ones, the nice-to-do things rather than the essential-to-do things.” This was his reaction to governmental departments’ trimming of 25 per cent to order to reduce the deficit.
