Following today’s Budget statement, Leicestershire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Willy Bach said:
“How depressing! After over an hour on his feet the Chancellor Philip Hammond couldn’t bring himself to even mention policing, let alone offer some desperately needed financial support.
“The public rightly expect Leicestershire Police to protect them. In order to enable them to do that, I expect the Government to properly fund Leicestershire Police.
“Clearly we need to see what happens when the police grant is announced in December but in the meantime I will continue to push our case for fairer funding for the police.”
