Police starter salary to be slashed
Fears over the future of policing were fuelled yesterday as the Home Secretary approved a radical shake-up of officers' pay which will see salaries for new starters slashed by almost 20 per cent.
Theresa May is to press ahead with a package of far-reaching reforms, which will include cutting annual pay for new police constables by £4,000 to £19,000.
The Police Federation warned the pay packet failed to reflect the demands of the job, while Labour said forces would struggle to recruit officers with the right skills.
"There is a real worry the proposed starting salary for all police officers will damage the ability of police forces to recruit officers of the right skills and experience," David Hanson, shadow policing minister, said.

The shake-up was masterminded by former rail regulator Tom Winsor following an 18-month review, which sparked outrage among tens of thousands of rank-and-file officers.
