Police Force Mergers

Back to all Motions

2013 Police & Justice Conference
12 June 2013

Following the merger of Scotland’s Police Forces it is anticipated that forces in England and Wales are likely to face similar proposals.

To ensure Regional Service Groups and Branches are in a position to respond to the challenges which will arise it is important that we develop a coherent national strategy.

Conference therefore calls upon the Service Group Executive to commission a report based on the experiences of colleagues in Scotland which looks at:

1)Funding and budget implications

2)The impact on job security

3)Harmonisation of local terms and conditions

4)Regional/Branch structures and organisational issues.
