Some £1.3m will come over two years from slashing "special priority payments" made to staff who take on greater responsibility.

And more than £1m wil come from reducing overtime payments and the use of agency staff.

Following the new targets, Thames Valley Police has to cut £8.2m this year, £18.1m next and £11.9m in 2012.
