    • Two police forces have been given approval to order their officers to retire as they attempt to rein back costs, it was reported

    North Wales and Strathclyde police authorities have already backed the cost-cutting plans and Surrey is being asked to follow suit, the BBC reported.

    Under regulation A19, which is contained in the Police Pensions Regulations 1987, officers can be ''required to retire'' if their retention would ''not be in the general interests of efficiency''.


    The rule affects those with 30 years service or more and applies to all police below chief officer rank, regardless of ability or age.


    Plans to use the measure is likely to be strongly resisted by organisations representing police officers.


    North Wales and Strathclyde police authorities have approved the use of A19 in recent weeks and Surrey police are believed to be the first English force to take the same route.


    The force's police authority will be asked to authorise the move at a meeting later, the BBC said.


    The police service has been ordered to cut its wage bill after the Government said funding would fall by 20% over the next four years.

    Hapa Bongo kuna mawizara kibao yanatakiwa kupunguziwa bajeti, na watu kupunguzwa!

    Ndio maana baadhi yetu tulichagua wapinzani, maana wana sera inayoelekea huko.

    Lakini kuna watu huko mawizarani ambao wameshachoka, na utendaji wao umekuwa well under acceptable measurements, wanabebwa tu ili wafikishe umri statutory wa kustaafu!
