The Family Silver

Posted in The Job - General by 200

Lincolnshire Police have come up with an innovative way to cut some of their proportion of the 20% that British Police forces have to knock off their budget due to the massive financial mismanagement the country has suffered.

They’re going to pay a private company to build and run a police station and send 540 employees to the private sector.

G4S will take over human resources, finance and IT for the force, which reckons that paying them £200million over ten years will save the force £20million. The civilian support staff will leave the police service and be re-employed by G4S.

In G4S’s bid for global domination, they are currently speaking to ten other forces about taking over some of their services.
