30 July 2019

Michael Lane, Police and Crime Commissioner, said: “The Prime Minister’s announcement that 20,000 new police officers will be recruited nationally over the next three years is very welcome.

“Such a significant increase in police numbers will have a real impact on tackling crime and offending in Hampshire, ensuring that we can get ahead of future threats.

“This is a huge opportunity to grow a workforce with the skills, technology and capability that will see us into the future and keep our communities safer for years to come.

“The Chief Constable and I stand ready to work with the Government and partners to ensure that we are able to meet the ambition of these plans.”
