Police authority in Suffolk plans to axe 300 jobs

Suffolk Police Authority is to consider axing 300 jobs including officer and staff posts to make £13m of savings over the next few years.

The authority is meeting later on Monday to approve several cost-cutting measures.

Budget reduction proposals include compulsory retirement for officers with 30 years of pensionable service.

Staff numbers are to be considerably reduced to avoid the authority dipping too deeply into their reserves.
