Police Association urges Government to fund more recruits

From Morning Report, 7:27 am on 29 July 2021

The Police Association is urging the Government to pay for more police recruits as dozens of officers leave the force.

Nearly 170 frontline officers left their jobs between March and July this year.

 The association says the Government has dropped the ball on both funding and recruitment with officers on the frontline now paying the price.
