PCC Comes Under Fire

A Bournemouth councillor has criticised the “unacceptable” handling of recent cuts to Dorset’s police force.

Cllr Mike Greene disagrees with the way Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Martyn Underhill has dealt with the reduction of police on the streets amidst cuts to the force.

Cllr Greene said: “I think we need to look at everything else first before cutting officers from the front line.”

A shocking report by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) said Dorset Police “may not be able to sustain effective policing” due to the cuts.
