Services across the board are facing swingeing government cuts, with Hampshire police bowing to the inevitable and getting rid of more than 1,000 jobs. Chief Constable Alex Marshall admitted he was trying to provide a service with his "hands tied behind his back." He said: "I know all our staff join the constabulary to do the best job they can and that the changes ahead will be difficult for everyone. This uncertainty is unsettling and there is a human story and personal consequence every time someone leaves."

Carpark Barriers & Turnstiles’ barriers, which smart cards can be used to automatically open when an authorised member of staff needs to gain access, make your site more secure. Automatic bollards limit vehicle access to a specific location, and can easily be lowered when passage is authorised, typically within two to three seconds. Constructed out of concrete, stainless steel, aluminium or cast iron, all of the automatic bollards are constructed to completely stop the majority of vehicles.
