Chief constable calls for unified police force

The chief constable of Avon and Somerset constabulary Colin Port has said that he passionately believes in having a national police force.

During a webchat on the constabulary website at the beginning of October, Port was asked if there were any merger plans to make one regional police force, or even a national one.

Port said the questioner had struck on a subject close to his heart, adding: "I believe passionately in a national police service which would be delivered locally without the need for 43 chief constables [and] at least 43 different IT systems. Scotland [is] leading the way in relation to this. I do hope we follow."

The chief constable added: "There's no reason why this would affect in a negative aspect local policing. In fact I think it would enhance it."
