£3.5m a year less for Notts Police in Govt grant
NOTTS Police will have £3.5m less to spend on fighting crime in the next financial year under proposed Government figures announced today.
The cut, which was expected, means the total amount the Government will spend on policing in Notts will be £137.5m from April next year to March 2014.
New Notts Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping will now work on finalising his first-ever budget for the force after being elected to his new role last month.
Mr Tipping said: "It's broadly what we expected. I'm still confident having looked at the figures that we are still going to be able to recruit more PCSOs and Police Officers next year. But we will need to work the sums out before we can say how many."
