A regulation allowing police forces to forcibly retire officers after 30 years’ service is not unlawful, the High Court has ruled.
The Police Superintendents’ Association for England and Wales (PSAEW) argued that the retiring of older officers would not result in major savings.
Hundreds of officers have been retired using regulation A19 after budgets were cut by 20% over five years.
The PSAEW said it was too early to say whether it would contest the decision.
Was there ever any doubt?
I mean… come on… imagine the lawsuits for loss of earnings?
As to the fed contesting… I wouldn’t trust them to sit the right way on a toilet…never mind win anything like this…
Roll on 2nd of Sept!!!
