Communications disease Policing

Northern police spin machines

TPAThe Taxpayers’ Alliance have an active North East branch that has been nosing around the local police forces to see what they are spending on their in-house comms teams. Follow link.

It looks like Durham, Cleveland and Northumbria all have 4-5 people doing press and publicity at a cost of around £100K per annum per force.

I guess that the Chief Constables want to tell everyone how great their forces are. Maybe they should concentrate on being great rather than saying they are great.
