Following the Chancellor’s comprehensive spending review, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside believes the announcement is a “welcome boost.”

George Osborne announced in his autumn statement that police spending would be protected.

Matthew Grove, police crime commisioner, said it’s a “welcome boost to Humberside police” and it “enables us to significantly maintain and improve the level of protection and service provided to our residents.”

He says the force has sound financial plans.

Mr Grove added that the announcement: “gives a much firmer footing to work on and will greatly assist me in my determination to preserve Neighbourhood Policing.”
