The Future of Policing Conference 2016
The way police work has changed, but the way they are paid has not
Since 2010, UK police forces have been cut by 16,000 officers, and there are plans to make a further reduction of 7,400 officers by 2018. The force has also experienced reforms to pay schemes and working practises in the wake of the Winsor Review, which some argue has left the police overstrained and demoralised.
In 2013 Home Secretary Theresa May suggested that these reforms are necessary to bring the police force up to date, “The way police work has changed, but the way they are paid has not.” Police services have also been criticised for their lack of both ethnic and gender diversity, which some claim fails to reflect the communities that they serve. Although, in recent years, government initiatives have been introduced to address this issue, these have had limited success. Meanwhile, steps have been taken to modernise the police force, equipping tomorrow’s police with tomorrow’s technology has become a leading concern. Several initiatives have been introduced with the aim of exploiting technology’s potential to reduce the police’s administrative burdens and assist in police enquiries.
