Stationery Office, Dec 2, 2009 - Law - 115 pages
This White Paper aims to build on reforms laid out in last year's Green Paper. Over the next five years the increasing challenges faced by the police will need to be met within the context of a much tighter fiscal environment. The reform agenda is based on four principles: citizen focussed; national standards; empowering professionals; and value for money. A key feature of the proposals being an aim of "saving at least 70m per annum by 2013/14 through more effective deployment and more robust internal management of police overtime, and at least 75m per annum by 2013/14 by rationalising back-office support services". It is also proposed to use national procurement networks, including a standard 'beat car' for all forces and a single national uniform.
