Top cop cautious on funding cuts
Wednesday, 04 July 2012
The Chief Constable of Devon and Cornwall has said he has ‘reservations’ about the funding received from central government.
Shaun Sawyer’s comments on Monday followed a report from HM Inspector of Constabulary which named the force as one of three in Britain which could struggle in the face of public spending cuts.
Insp Dru Sharpling said because Devon and Cornwall had cut costs before 2010 it was finding it more difficult than other forces to find the extra savings.
