May smiled wanly, making a mental note to sack her speechwriter. And to remind the new culture secretary to make life as difficult for Channel 4 as for the BBC.’ ‘There...

Written by RSS Poster Surrey Constabulary Blog on the 15th February 2015 at 10:45 - Posted in Police Blogs

I am grateful to the Police and Fire Service Fairer Commutation Campaign on Facebook for their detailed information and for the campaign they are waging to get (in our case) Police Pensioners who retired between 1998 and 2006 justice in terms of the pension they received. In case you do not pick up on it, PO stands for Pensions Ombudsman. GAD stands for the Government Actuary’s Department. CF...

Basically, I made an FOI request to the Home Office asking for copies of Risk Assessments and Impact Assessments in relation to the previously announced 5% cut to Police Budgets.

Written by RSS Poster Surrey Constabulary Blog on the 22nd January 2015 at 9:40 - Posted in Police Blogs
