Police Staff Protection

Back to all Motions

2010 Police and Justice Service Group Conference
24 June 2010

Since Modernisation the extended deployment of Police Staff has been recognised as a vital component in helping to tackle crime and provide visible patrols contributing to neighbourhood safety.

At a time when all Forces are facing financial constraints Conference is concerned that Police Authorities will sacrifice Police Staff in order to maintain Police Officer numbers.

Conference does not believe this is the right way to improve efficiency and costs and call upon the Service Group Executive to:

1)Publish facts to prove the increased effectiveness of Forces;

2)Issue guidelines to branches to help in local campaigns to protect jobs;

3)Raise our concerns with the Home Office;

4)Continue to lobby all stakeholders to recognise the value of police staff and the benefits they bring to the police service;

5)Continue to campaign against job losses and attacks on terms and conditions.
