5000 Met Police Jobs Could Go

19 November 2012, 19:09

The Met Police is looking to cut nearly 5000 staff including 1200 senior officers.

Getting rid of senior officers will save around 60 million pounds each year and help cover the costs of bringing in more police constables.

Under the plans, 3,500 of the Met's 14,000 civilan staff posts are also set to go by 2015.

The changes have been sent to the Mayor's Office of Policing and Crime where they'll need approval before going ahead.
