Police Federation chairman: Sajid Javid must deliver on pledges for policing

It would be “unforgivable” if politicians failed to act on “desperately needed” long-term funding for policing, the head of the body which represents rank-and-file officers has warned.

John Apter, national chairman of the Police Federation of England and Wales, has called on ministers to re-write the rules on funding by introducing “at least” a 10-year strategy for budgets to allow forces to properly plan for the future instead of sticking to the current annual review.
