Cllr Stephanie Nunn writes on the Dec 2017 copy of Focus.
Police panel,Elm park matters, the Councillors for that ward attended the police panel meeting for Elm park, and they were told, ' There is not enough funding, to keep all the police cycles serviced and on the road'.
Elm park ward will be down to one bike. The annual service contract for one bike is £150.
So the Metropolitan police, and the LONDON BOROUGH OF HAVERING, cannot scrape together a bit of pocket change to service a few police cycles.
What a complete farce.
It's not the SIZE of the dog in the fight.............it's the size of the FIGHT in the dog that counts.
Then let's get rid of one or two of them and provide more police bikes. What's happened to all the cash from selling off multiple police stations? What's happened to the boot allowance for all the beat bobbies that have been made redundant?
There is a bloke called Claud Morrais? he was a regular labour rent a gob on our local tv and radio stations until he got elected to the EU Parliament,never seen or heard hide or hare of him since,probably thinks every day is his birthday counting his/our money.
I'd love to know where all those £130 fines go.
For sure not on road maintenance.
I asked them a few years back when I was hit with a £60 fine for allegedly taking Little Miss D1 out of school (and refused to pay) that the money was spent on administering the scheme and encouraging regular attendance at school.
Well it costs a lot to put something on the school newsletter sent out each week with veiled threats if little Johnny or Sarah aren't in school every day the parents will get taken to court.
Very true,we took our granddaughter to New York the week before half term best £60 quid we spent.
Life experience better than all the left wing PC sociology crap their fed at the behest of the teachers unions.
'Extra £450m funding' for police in England and Wales
39 minutes ago
A potential £450m in extra funding for police in England and Wales in the next financial year has been announced by the Home Office.
Police and crime commissioners are to be given the power to raise the portion of council tax which goes towards policing by £12 per household annually.
That would raise £270m, while £130m for national priorities, such as firearms, would come from central government.
An extra £50m for counter terrorism has already been pledged.
The government also announced the overall grant for the 43 forces in England and Wales would remain the same in cash terms in 2018-19 at £12.6bn.
However, opposition MPs described the main settlement for next year as a "real-terms cut".
Although funding for police was protected in the 2015 spending review, police and crime commissioners have been expressing concern about increased demands on officers.
In a statement, the Home Office said next year's extra funding came after Policing Minister Nick Hurd spoke to every force about the issues they face.
"It is clear that with more victims of serious, hidden crimes such as domestic abuse, modern slavery and child sexual exploitation coming forward, this has placed greater demand on policing," it said.
Speaking in the Commons, Mr Hurd said the extra money was a "comprehensive settlement that makes sure police have the resources they need".
