Motion text

That this House believes it is important that police forces continue to build and maintain strong links with local communities and that Hampshire is best served by retaining a stand-alone police force; further believes that the Government's proposals to require mergers between existing forces could make them more distant from the communities that they serve; further believes that the Government's proposed amalgamation of Hampshire Constabulary with another force or forces risks it becoming detached from the community it serves thus defeating the aims of the current proposals and does not properly take account of the needs of the vast and diverse area served by Hampshire Constabulary; and further believes that the alternatives for the region provide unacceptable and retrograde solutions for policing the communities of southern England.
