Police Mergers: How much will it cost?
The Bourne Local reported this week that the mergers would “cost the county £100 million”.
In fact, £100 million is the estimated cost of merging all five existing East Midlands police forces into one.
It is of course a huge cost, and the Police Authority are naturally looking for the Home Office to foot the bill should the mergers go ahead.
