    Posted On 15 Mar 2012

The second part of the Winsor Review, published 15th March 2012, contains 121 recommendations – including direct entry into the inspector and superintendents ranks, reward for skills not length of service, a yearly fitness test for all police officers, the ability for chief constables to effectively make police officers redundant before 30 years’ service and higher educational entry requirements to become a police officer.
