Police target criminals posing as window cleaners
PC Louise Parker is asking for the public's help to identify a group of people who may have information relating to burglaries in the county.

The group have been seen travelling in a silver BMW series 1 vehicle. The group is believed to be all men and possibly Eastern Europeans.

They are reported to have touted for window cleaning work, but no ladders or buckets have been seen.

It is believed that this group have recently been in the Bedworth area, particularly Exhall, but it is very possible that they have travelled or will travel elsewhere in the county.
Police target criminals posing as window cleaners Anyone who thinks they have seen this group or who may see the group in the future with or without a silver BMW 1 series, is asked to contact PC Parker on 01926 415000, voicemail 10090. PC Parker would particularly appreciate information about the vehicle registration number of any vehicle that may be linked to this group.

Information can also be passed on to PC Parker anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Warwickshire Police offers voluntary redundancy to staff
Warwickshire Police offers voluntary redundancy to staff Warwickshire Police has today, Wednesday March 16, offered staff the opportunity to apply for voluntary redundancy as part of the force’s plans to reduce its spending by £22.9m by March 31 2015.

All members of staff with more than two years continuous service have been invited to consider volunteering for redundancy.

Staff who choose to consider this will enter an eight to ten week process, during which they will be offered financial packages in line with the force’s current redundancy rates.

Not all applications for voluntary redundancy will be accepted but the force has to cut £22.9m from its budget by March 31 2015 and much of this will come from a reduction in both officer and staff posts.

The voluntary redundancy scheme is for police staff only and does not apply to police officers.

The force has already announced that it is implementing regulation 19, the complulsory retirement for police officers who have reached 30 years pensionable service.

All applications for voluntary rdundancy will be reviewed and decisions made on the basis of reducing costs whilst maintaining operational effectiveness for Warwickshire Police.

Full consultation has taken place with unions and staff associations.
Chief Constable Keith Bristow said:

"We value our workforce of committed and talented people. Our police staff fulfil a wide range of crucial policing roles including public facing roles such as PCSOs, Scenes of Crime Officers and those in the Communications Centre, as well as specialist professional services in areas such as Human Resources and Finance.

“Losing staff is not something we want to do, but something we have to do in order to make the budget cuts required of us.

“We have to reduce our spending by a total of £22.9 million by the end of March 2015.

“The settlement packages which will be offered for those choosing voluntary redundancy will allow staff to leave the organisation by their own choice.”
