Last month, what was described as a ‘major programme of modernisation’ was announced by the Isle of Man Constabulary in response to the squeeze on Government budgets.

The restructuring includes the closure of two police stations, a reduction in officer numbers, changes to Neighbourhood Policing and an overhaul of the Financial Crime Unit.

Roger’s guests on the programme will be Minister for the Department of Home Affairs Juan Watterson and Chief Constable Gary Roberts, whose latest annual report will be debated by Tynwald members next week.
