Well not really. Kent Police are having to make savage cuts to their staff to match the expected £53m that will be necessary to balance the books over the next four years.
It could mean up to 1,000 civilian jobs and 500 police posts being cut.
But here is the worrying figures that come to light.
Kent currently has 3,728 police officers and 2,932 civilian staff.
FFS. That’s 44% civilian staff. What an earth do they all do?
And as to the 3,728 frontline staff. What exactly do you do? Apart from zooming around with blue lights flashing on the top of your Skodas. Would it be possible that you could actually Walk the streets?
And of course the usual bleating from the union.
