Lancashire Police plans to cut further £20m from budget January 25th, 2013 admin Latest News Shares Comments Plans to save a further £20m have been revealed by Lancashire police. The force has already had to save £43m due to government budget cuts, which resulted in the loss of about 500 police officers. That figure has now been increased to £60m, but Chief Constable Steve Finnegan said changes can be made that will not affect frontline policing. His proposals include losing one of three Assistant Chief Constable posts and four Chief Superintendent roles. The force has already made £40m of the initial £43m it was asked to save, so now has to save a further £20m. About £10.5m of that needs to be saved by April 2014. Mr Finnegan’s scheme to restructure the constabulary is planned to be implemented by April next year.
