Nottinghamshire police respond to HMIC report

"This inspection took place a few months ago and we are already much further ahead in our preparations to meet future financial difficulties. Although some of the findings were fair at the time they were written, we reject the notion that we've been slow to implement change. The challenges we face are significant and require careful consideration. We've been determined not to make any rash decisions that we later regret."

"Importantly, we have a balanced budget this year, indications show that will remain the case next year and we are achieving our savings. Let me be clear - it's tough out there, but we are not in a precarious financial position. HMIC is aware fully aware of our position and the progress that has been made since this inspection."
