The Conservative Government is planning to cut the Home Office budget in November’s Comprehensive Spending Review and change the ‘Police Funding Formula’.
The North Yorkshire Police Federation has warned that these comibined cuts could see a reduction in police numbers and leave North Yorkshire Police (who cover York) with fewer police officers than when the force was founded in 1974. The Federation has called for North Yorkshire to be given a “fair deal” by the Government.
To show our support for North Yorkshire Police we have started the folloiwng petition which we urge you to sign:
I/We the undersigned oppose plans by the Conservative Government to cut the funding for the North Yorkshire Police.
