Greater Manchester Police 

Location: UK » North West » M

Greater Manchester Police will lose a quarter of its staff as it deals with a £134m budget cut from 2011-15.

Greater Manchester Police Authority, which oversees the police force, plans to cut 2,944 jobs over four years, including 1,557 civilian posts and 1,387 frontline officers. A recruitment freeze is also planned for 2011/12.

By law police officers cannot be made redundant, so the authority expects the savings in frontline officers to come from natural wastage, a recruitment freeze and forced retirement for officers with more than 30 years service.
