In England we have 42 separate police forces who have individual infrastructures comprising, headquarters (including staff and buildings) which also have different policies (purchasing,building management, storage of property,vehicles etc), organisational structures, and uniforms.

Why is this idea important?

We should consolidate all 42 forces into a maximum of 7 regional forces with a common infrastructure, centralised purchasing, standardised policies and procedures covering all aspects of policing, central control of all buildings and grounds, common uniform standards, and specific standards for storing all property retained by the police.

This should be implemented immediately.

Disband ACPO as an organisation (with a consolidation of forces it is no longer required) and therefore save additional costs.
