Friday to discuss joining the US air strikes against Islamic State in

BBC Look North. The Humberside Police Chief


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


and use everything we have `t our disposal ` whether it's changing


shifts or modern technology. Labour leader Ed Miliband s`ys


he wants to see fewer unskilled I do want to see fewer low skilled


migrants because I think th`t's Police in Lincoln investigate after


a leaflet attacking homosextality is Can Barton's star baker takd


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,


following the Scottish referendum, We need greater powers to bd


given to local areas in England We've had devolution in Scotland


and Wales. And a fairer deal for poorer parts `

after a leaflet attacking homosexuality was distributdd to


hundreds of homes in the city. Officers say the leaflet has


caused offence, and may It comes ahead


of this weekend's Lincoln Pride event, which organisers hopd will be


the biggest the city has sedn. This is the leaflet that has caused


so much offence. It disclails homosexuality as unnatural. When the


leaflet was put through this man's letterbox, she was upset and


annoyed. It made me feel angry. Opposite. `` Upset. That solebody


would post this. Police say they have received two formal colplaints.


They do not know who has bedn distributing it. It is a between
