Kent Police Amalgamation News

Published on the Kent Police website.

The Home Office has announced that police forces in the south east must consider five options for the future. Two of these include Kent remaining a stand-alone strategic force.

The move follows the publication in September of HM Inspectorate of Constabulary’s Closing the Gap report, recommending that smaller forces should merge where they cannot provide effective and efficient ‘protective services’, such as major, serious and organised crime, roads policing and counter-terrorism.

Kent’s preferred option is to become a single strategic force and its submission to the Home Office presented a strong case for it to remain independent.

However, the Home Office response is that Kent and its neighbours must still look at other options, including mergers.

'Yes, we'd very much like to amalgamate with our neighbouring forces......'

Can't see it, can you?
