Suffolk PCC trims budgets but says 'no compulsory job cuts'

8 May 2014 Last updated at 13:11 BST

Suffolk Police and Crime Commissioner Tim Passmore has said he expects to deliver budget cuts without the need for compulsory redundancies.

He tells Susie Fowler-Watt that he hopes to cut £16m from the police budget through natural wastage and says a large number of staff are approaching retirement age.

Relations with Norfolk police remain "good" despite a planned merger of the two forces' control rooms falling through, he added.
