Responding to the Chancellor’s Comprehensive Spending Review announcements today (Wednesday 25 November) Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne said the protection of the policing budget was a very welcome recognition of the vital work of the police in keeping the public safe.“This announcement delivers some much needed stability for police forces in England and Wales at a time when public reassurance is critical. For the individual police officers, I also hope that it demonstrates how highly regarded they are.”
