Chief constable rapped over force failings

PUBLISHED April 6, 2005

An overhaul of the way Nottinghamshire police deals with serious offences begins next week after its chief constable claimed that government budgets had left his officers "reeling" in the face of a sharp rise in gun crime.

Steve Green, the head of the Nottinghamshire force, is to share his headquarters with an outside specialist drafted in by the Home Office to sort out failings in dealing with murder and other serious crime.
