On the first occasion a senior officer or minister has suggested that traditional front line policing will not escape the huge axe in public services, one of the country’s top policemen has warned that bobbies on the beat could fall under cuts. Hugh Orde, the President of the Association of Chief Police Officers, made the stark statement in private notes inadvertently sent to The Daily Telegraph newspaper. He suggested that departmental cuts of 25% signalled in last week’s emergency budget would mean significantly fewer police on the streets despite the popularity of officers on foot among politicians and the public.
