The Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) is in danger of going bust, the BBC has learned.
A limited company, Acpo is half-funded by the Home Office and half by 44 police authorities.
A source told the BBC that a third of authorities had refused to pay this year and another third were undecided.
The Association of Police Authorities (APA) said the withdrawal of funding by police authorities was partly due to a squeeze on their income.
My comment: Good, now can we get back to proper policing and put a stop to politically correct out of touch Police Chiefs ruining the police. All we then need is for the LGA (Local Government Asociation) and SOLACE (Society of Local Authority Chief Executives) to go the same way. Then we can also revert to effective local government without the need for fat cats, spin or self serving associations and societies.
