says losing 200 officers to save We're going to do our absoltte best

the heat as the pressure tells The players and the cheerle`ders are
already warming up for this one .. The veteran footballers takhng
to the field once again. Humberside Police's Chief Constable
has confirmed 700 jobs will go at the force in the next five xears,
including 200 police officers. More than ?30 million has to be
saved but Justine Curran saxs by changing shift patterns lore
officers will be available to The Police Federation who rdpresent
officers say they're worried about fatigue and sickness caused
by rising work loads. In a moment I will be talking to
the Chief Constable who is with me in the studio but first Jo Lakel
has this report. Austerity is still biting ptblic
Celsius. A Humberside Policd has already had received ?30 million
earned more cuts are on the way 200 officers must go. 500 other
possessions, also. But by changing the shift patterns, Justine Curran
believes she can have more officers available. We will do everything
that we can, everything at our disposal. The new shift patterns
will give us 100 officers over each 24 was. `` hours. But the Police
Federation is worried. They are going to have to work this new shift
pattern, they are going to have less quality time with families. Fatigue
is going to play a big part. What of the communities? Officers whll no
longer be organised according to geography but by demand. Thdre's
sense in this... According to the Home Office, St Andrews had 561
reported crimes. Holderness, 35 . But what do people want frol the
police? I want them to look out for us. What's the streets. I w`nt a few
safe where I work. `` feel safe where I live. This reorganisation
altar requires cultural changes for the force and the public. `` also.
Good evening Justine Curran. People watching tonight will wonder how
it's possible to lose 200 officers and 500 other staff including PCSOs
without affecting the quality of policing. How is that possible? We
are taking away bureaucracy, Barrios, things that do not deliver
benefit. So has it been over staff? No, but we have processes and
practices that do not delivdr. I am interested to listen to the
communities. We are committdd. It does sound like wool over the
eyes... I can understand. Btt we are revisiting the demand. It is not the
same as it used to be. By changing, we get more people out when needed.
The Police Federation have told us they worry about fatigue and the
'sickness will go through the roof'. How will you cope if officers don't
turn up to work because thex are exhausted? We have not done this on
the back of a fag packet. Wd have looked at the shift patterns, the
impact, but we have to put the public cost. `` first. 500 PCSOs
going as well? Approximatelx 40 It was just recently that they were
being hailed the next big thing They do a fantastic job but we have
shown that in terms of the demand, we can do with the issues. 200
police officers and 40 PCSOs? It is going to be a challenge. I have to
deliver 24th century policing. I am convinced that we can do th`t. The
Police Fed have also told us "centralisation of resources means
officers will have to travel further to incidents". Isn't it better to
have officers spread out across the force area? If you stay another
watch, they could be maybe Zoe? `` stay in a village, they could be 25
miles away? We will get the coverage. But the start far away?
Start the day at one point. It will be layered on. The chances `re, much
better coverage. They will be coming on at different times. Matthew
Grove, the Police and Crime Commissioner has said beford nobody
will lose their neighbourhood police station. Can you promise none of the
police stations currently open to the public will close? We h`ve no
plans to change their estatd. No plans. But we have to think about
how we can best provide the services. It is too simple to see
what bricks and mortar rehab, but we have to give them the axis that
people want. That could be `t a doctor's surgery. So not a police
station? People come to spe`k to us to get advice. They do not, for the
building. `` do not come for the building. Thank you. We want to hear
your views on this story, do you think it's possible to maintain or
even improve policing with cuts to officer numbers? What's your
experience of policing? The Labour leader Ed Miliband has
told BBC Look North he wants to see fewer unskilled migrants coling to
work in our area ` Mr Miliband has been answerhng
questions from voters in Grhmsby He's been speaking to our Political
Editor Tim Iredale at the L`bour Grimsby is a town where Labour
can't afford to lose many voters. The party will defend one
of its smallest majorities here in next year's general election
when the town's long time So,
the people of Grimsby have plenty to What can you do about emploxment
in the Grimsby area? What we're going to do immediately
for Ryan is raise the minimum wage so that thd job he
does get will be better paid. We're also going to create lore
apprenticeships, because I think too many of our young peopld
don't have opportunities. I'm Pat, retired,
and I want to know if Mr Miliband will cut the number of immigrants
allowed to come to the country. We want to get low
skill migration down. The way we'll do that, we'll clamp
down on employers who fail to pay the minimum wage ` migrants come
here, get paid below the minimum And I say to employers bringing
in workers from outside the EU. They must provide apprenticdships
for the next generation. Are you saying you want to see fewer
migrants coming to places My question is,
