The Commissioner's response to the Home Affairs Select Committee Report on Policing

"The picture painted by the committee is not one that wholly represents the siuation in Hertfordshire. I have ensured that local policing has not been cut as it has in other parts of the country and this year I have been able to invest additional resources in it. However, we are facing extra policing pressures and funding issues; though I remain confident that the Home Office and the Chancellor are aware of these and will seek to address them."
