Police Force Collaboration Will Save Money

The Bedfordshire Police, Cambridgeshire Constabulary and Hertfordshire Constabulary are coming together as BCH.

The BCH Firearms and Explosives Licensing and BCH Human Resources units both launched on 1 December and is expected to save the three forces a total of £4.5m over the next three financial years.

Criminal Justice, Custody, ICT, Information Management and Public Contact, are expected to collaborate in 2016/17, saving a further £10m over a three-year period.

Beds PCC, Olly Martins, said, "The government has announced a grant cut of £400,000 to Bedfordshire Police for 2015/16. Due to cost and pay pressures Beds Police need to make further savings of £5.8million. Tri-force collaboration therefore has a vital role to play in enabling us to balance the books without making further reductions to frontline policing strength."
