Row Between Police Chiefs and Government Over Police Officers Reduction

According to recent reports, there have been unrest especially in the UK’s capital following the numerous terror attacks that have hit the country. On the other hand, Police chiefs in Britain are in dispute with the Government after claiming they will need to cut the number of officers on the streets to fund a two per cent pay rise.
However, Labour’s shadow minister for security, Nick Thomas-Symonds MP came up and challenged the motion. He cautioned that the cuts would put “further strain on already overstretched police budgets”.
