New police savings

POLICE in Scarborough will be part of a regionwide money-saving programme which aims to save a total of £7 million across forces in Yorkshire and the Humber.

It is one of a number of cost-cutting initiatives which have been introduced after four forces – in North Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, South Yorkshire and Humberside – were set a savings target of £10 million over five years.

Under the regionwide programme vehicle maintenance, vehicle conversions and training costs will be kept in-house and vehicles will be supplied by Vauxhall and BMW.
