Today's Home Office media stories includes coverage of the Home Secretary's speech at the Police Superintendents’ Association conference, and an op-ed on the EU Settlement Scheme.
Home Secretary’s policing speech
There is coverage this morning of the Home Secretary’s “first major speech” to police yesterday at the Police Superintendents’ Association (PSA) in the Times, Telegraph, Mail, Express, Sun and Star.
According to the articles, the Home Secretary said she recognised that the police had been “overworked and undervalued” and insisted that she wanted to reset the relationship. They report that she admitted that it would take more than a “sticking plaster” to heal the years of damage in relations.
The Times and Express also include comments made by Chief Superintendent Paul Griffiths, head of the Police Superintendents’ Association who said that officers across the country were under unprecedented pressure. According to the articles, he welcomed the pledge to recruit 20,000 new officers and lent his support to a new “root-and-branch” review of the state of policing in the UK, which will be carried out by Sir Michael Barber a former adviser to Tony Blair, with the support of police chiefs and public bodies.
