The figures returned in the FOI request asked for spend rather than budget.
The article reported that Lancashire Constabulary had received a five per cent, or £35,000, increase in budget from 2010/11 to 2011/12. In fact we have had a £221,000 reduction in budget.
While difficult, these reviews have afforded us the opportunity to ensure that we are future-fit.
