Protecting the Public: Supporting the Police to Succeed

'Protecting the Public: Supporting the Police to Succeed (Cm 7749)' aims to build on reforms laid out in last year's Green Paper, 'From the Neighbourhood to the National: Policing our Communities Together (Cm. 7448)'. 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.
Reflecting this the reform agenda is based on four principles:
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.
