Police forces face funding cut of 15% in real terms, claims Commons analysis

Police officers

Police forces in England and Wales face a funding cut of more than 15% over the next two years in real terms – more than expected – according to a House of Commons analysis of Home Office grant figures published today.
The analysis, commissioned by the shadow home secretary, Ed Balls, reflects an updated estimate for inflation in November. It shows that the 43 police forces in England and Wales face front-loaded cuts of 7.1% in real terms funding next year and 8.5% in the year of the Olympics.
The Commons library analysis contrasts with a Home Office statement today that police forces in England and Wales face a cut (in cash terms) of 5.1% in 2011/12 and 6.7% in 2012/13.
