But then the rep for the Police Federation which, for those who don’t know, is the union policemen aren’t allowed to have. The job of a rep for which is to say that there should be many more Police Federation members being paid ever-escalating amounts of money. This isn’t something to complain about. That would be like whining that the pitbull won’t let go of your ankle; this is what they are for.
But it is worth examining whether these claims of ever fewer police are in fact true. The answer being up to a point Lord Copper.
And my thanks to Louis R who dug out the old police numbers for me, unprompted I might add.
