You Can Tell The Election Is Coming: South Yorkshire Police Fears Over Budget Cuts

Recommended Posts


Police officers may have to stop policing football matches, dealing with neighbourhood disputes and carrying out welfare checks as budget cuts take their toll.

The Reverend Dr Alan Billings, South Yorkshire police and crime commissioner gave the stark warning as he said the county’s police force may have to start saying ‘no’ to some requests for help with fewer officers and less cash than ever before leaving the service stretched.

He said the police force was the ‘service of last resort’ which other organisations were increasingly turning to in times of austerity.

However, he said to maintain law and order on the county’s streets the force may have to start rejecting some requests in a bid to balance its books.

The first budget cuts came in 2007 – by 2017 South Yorkshire Police will have had to find savings of £74.5 million.

But this week, the force finances took a turn for the worst when it emerged a Home Office grant to cover the cost of legal fees for police officers involved in the Hillsborough inquests had left a £6 million ‘shortfall’.


Bosses are trying to boost the number of special constables they have working for free in the county to increase police visibility on the streets.

They are also looking at sharing more community buildings , including schools and libraries, rather than operating in under-used aging police stations.

He should have added that if we don't get the money paedos will be able to operate with immunity in South Yorkshire....

I'm surprised he didn't add but if you vote Labour we'll be able to have a copper on every street corner....

Perhaps the courts to order offenders to do their community service as "special constables" helping to keep the public safe?
