Police officers outside flower shop in County Durham
Ron Hogg has made the following statement in response to the Police Arbitration Panel agreeing with the Windsor Review that the starting salary for police constables should be reduced by £4,000.
"I think this decision is absolutely outrageous and disgraceful and it is likely that this will impact on police recruitment in the future.
"Policing can be a very dangerous job, as recently seen in Manchester. Brave young people often put their own lives at risk and this is how they are treated by their country".
