New Essex campaign highlights consequences of cuts but also rings true across England & Wales

Wouldn’t it be nice…

Essex Police Federation has launched their #CutsHaveConsequences public awareness campaign to highlight the consequences of multi-million pound cuts to policing budgets in Essex - and what they will mean to the tax-paying public.

 

You can view their dedicated site here and can watch their campaign video here.

 

The campaign will also be featured heavily in local media - print, radio, TV and online and will feature in policing media this week.

 

#CutsHaveConsequences will run across social media, adverts and public events for the next three months.

 

Although aimed at the Essex public, the campaign - and the #CutsHaveConsequences hashtag in particular - may well be relevant across the country so please feel free to view and share the message with your colleagues, friends and family.

 

410 fewer police officers in Essex since 2010. More losses expected.

 

A result of £72.5 million cuts to our policing budget.
