Too many sworn officers are hidden away in back offices

Blair Gibbs, head of crime and justice at the think-tank, said: "Too many sworn officers are hidden away in back offices.

"Some forces like Surrey and Suffolk became more efficient by hiring cheaper civilian staff but many did not.

"As a result taxpayers have spent at least £500 million since 2006 in extra employment costs for over 7,000 police officers who have a uniform, but who aren't policing.

If you REALLY want to be a wind-up merchant, why not do it on a Police Officer message board?
