Novichok Bill “Over £10m” For Wiltshire Police

Posted on August 10, 2018

PCC Angus Macpherson said he “fully expects” the costs of policing both operations to be met by the government. He said it was “unimaginable” Wiltshire Police had had to deal with two “unparalleled incidents” in such a short space of time and the force had “endured significant costs”. Mr Macpherson projected more than £7m of the total bill will cover the cost of extra police officers which came from 40 other forces, with more than £1.3m spent on overtime for officers and staff. The force had to cancel officer rest days and put annual leave requests on hold to deal with the incidents and also brought in private security to guard cordons.
