 What would you do if you couldn’t do your job anymore?

The majority of those who have left the police service due to an injury on duty, based on our research, said their primary source of income is either from their police pension or a family member. That’s why we are looking for Ambassador volunteers who can spread the word about our retraining grants that can help those no longer able to do their policing role. Our Ambassadors will conduct presentations, put up posters, represent the Trust at local events and raise awareness on how those injury on duty can register with the Trust.

 Significant day in Parliament

A 10-Minute Rule Bill will be read in Parliament on Tuesday 19 December 2017 which could lead to legislative change to better protect emergency response drivers.

Far too many emergency response drivers have found themselves accused of driving carelessly or dangerously when they have simply been doing their job. This will be addressed by MP Sir Henry Bellingham's Bill and could lead to the introduction of an exemption for police and other emergency service workers.

 Half of Gwent Police’s budget will be raised through local taxation by 2021

Jeff Cuthbert, the Police and Crime Commissioner, has warned that half of his force’s budget will have to be raised through local taxation by 2021, if current UK Government spending cuts continue.

Speaking to BBC Wales, Mr Cuthbert said he understood that people did not want to pay more for the police precept, which is collected with council tax.

However, if the projected 2% cuts from the Home Office continued, then around 50% of Gwent Police’s budget will have to be paid for locally – compared to around 30% in 2008.

 Public show support for officers carrying Taser

The public have shown their support for police officers having access to Taser, dispelling the myth that it erodes community policing or the British model of policing by consent.

A survey, commissioned by the Police Federation of England and Wales, has shown 71% of respondents consider it acceptable for police officers to carry Taser when on patrol.

Four out of five surveyed said it would make no difference to their decision, or they would be more likely, to approach an officer for assistance if they were carrying a Taser. In addition, 89% said forces should be allowed to train and equip officers if the use of Taser is automatically recorded by Body Worn Video.

 PCC Launches Police Funding Consultation

Gwent PCC Jeff Cuthbert is required to ensure that all the people who live in Gwent have an efficient and effective police service and he has a legal requirement to set the police budget. With this in mind, Mr Cuthbert launches his Have Your Say consultation survey today.

Since the start of the UK Government's current austerity programme in 2010/11, Gwent Police has delivered 42.1m of efficiency savings to date. However, the Force will still potentially face a recurring deficit of nearly 12 million by 2021/22 as a result of the Home Offices review of the way police forces in England and Wales are funded. This is in addition to the underlying cuts forecast from the effect of the Government's austerity programme. Since 2012, officer numbers in Gwent have been reduced by 220 and staff numbers by 151 (up to 2015).
