Police Reserve must be kept on

So our new Chief Constable thinks he knows it all by saying the Police Reserve have to go by early next year.

He needs to be reminded that he is no longer on the mainland and that, when he needs extra manpower, he cannot call on the constabulary next door to give him support as happens in England.

Also, if he went to the Government, they may not be able to give him Army support due to their commitments in Afghanistan.

This must be seen as a blatant political decision to appease republicans.
