Superintendents' Association Response to Winsor Review Part 1 8 March 2011 Comment from President, Derek Barnett, in relation to the publication of the Winsor Review: "I am pleased that Tom Winsor has explicitly recognised that policing is an essential public service and that the Office of Constable is the bedrock of our policing model. "The recommendations made by Mr Winsor, if fully implemented, will impact upon the Police Service for many years to come and so it is important to recognise that the publication of his report now needs careful consideration by the Home Secretary and the Police Service and marks the start of a process of consultation and negotiation through the PNB. "It is inevitable in any such review that there will be some winners and losers and it is important now that we take the opportunity to reflect on the huge amount of detail. We need to recognise that police officers, along with other public servants, are facing a two year pay freeze, and steep increase in pension contributions that will significantly reduce the take home pay of all police officers. This will amount to a double hit for many officers. "In addition, the 20% reduction in police budgets and predicted reduction in police officer and police staff numbers will have an inevitable impact on workloads and morale. "Nevertheless, no matter how these recommendations affect officers and staff, I have confidence that everyone will continue to deliver a first class service to the public and continue our successful efforts to reduce crime and antisocial behaviour in our communities."
