  • Steve Evans, vice chair of the Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW), said: “Police officers and the PFEW do not accept or condone corruption in any form. We share the concern of the public that anyone guilty of such behaviour has no place in the police service and should feel the full force of the law against them. “Police forces have robust and effective systems in place to weed out corrupt officers. In addition, the College of Policing maintains a register of the names of police officers dismissed for gross misconduct following a misconduct hearing as well as those who have left the service prior to appearing before a misconduct hearing for gross misconduct. We welcome anything that strengthens these provisions against corruption and corrupt behaviour.”

  • Rick Nelson, of the Police Federation’s operational policing sub-committee, said: ‘If forces are serious about improving efficiency in times of budget cuts, they should look to increase their numbers of police dogs and police horses – doing the opposite is incredibly short-sighted. Dogs represent an extremely versatile policing tool. They don’t just provide a crucial component of public order policing but their assistance is invaluable across a range of situations from drugs and missing persons searches to firearms operations and everything in between. Likewise, mounted units provide a range of policing benefits to the public such as helping officers in public order situations. The police service should focus on efficiency savings and getting value for money, not purely on saving money. This doesn’t just mean increasing the numbers of police officers but increasing the numbers of police dogs and mounted units.’
