Kent Police must cut £9m from its budget in the next financial year.
About £3m has been achieved through the retirement of long-serving police officers who had reached a higher salary band than those replacing them.
Kent Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Scott said the force was having to be "smarter" in finding savings.
Ch Con Alan Pughsley said: “The police service nationally has faced unprecedented financial challenges in recent years, with Kent Police alone having to identify more than £110 million worth of savings since 2010."
Closures of police stations are not expected, but other savings include a £100,000 reduction in police expenses spending, a £78,000 decrease in fuel costs, and a review of police uniforms.
The move comes despite rises in the police precept of the council tax in Kent, which is expected to generate about £8.4m from April 2020 to March 2021.
Kent Police is also set to recruit an extra 147 officers over the next financial year, as part of the government’s planned 20,000 new officers.
