AT least 250 jobs are set to go at Hertfordshire Constabulary over the next three years.

Chief constable Frank Whiteley announced management and admin posts would be slashed - adding he hoped there was no threat to police officers on the front line.

He was speaking at Friday's launch of the county's policing plan, which mapped out the force's priorities up until 2012.

He said: "We need to make radical changes if we are to achieve what we need to over the next three years, the economic climate means that losses are going to have to be made."
