Evening standard.Evening Standard comment: Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe is right: no more police cuts

1 post in this topic

In the interview with the Met Commissioner, Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, in this paper today, he warned that as a result of changes and cuts to government spending, there could be swingeing cuts in police numbers — by perhaps thousands rather than hundreds. Some of the cuts — which City Hall estimates at up to £700 million — are to redistribute funding to the regions, but as Sir Bernard points out, this ignores London’s unique problems. Crucially, as he says, London’s population is increasing as a result of migration — by a million in the past decade — and in parts of the capital a high birth rate means that there are large numbers of young men, the group that statistically accounts for most crime.  http://www.standard.co.uk/comment/comment/evening-standard-comment-sir-bernard-hoganhowe-is-right-no-more-police-cuts-a3468506.html
