Sussex Police Bosses Enjoy Night at the Grand – at the Taxpayers’ Expense

Published by on Friday, 13 February 2009No Comment

When it is time for a police conference what better to do than take ten top officers to the £250-a-head Grand Hotel, all at the taxpayers’ expense of course, rather than the police conference centre near Gatwick, a mere 19 miles away? That’s the decision Robin Merrett, Assistant Chief Constable of Sussex Police, took, claiming that he wanted to take the officers to ‘different surroundings’. Slaugham Manor, where the police have training facilities as well as 60 bedrooms and 15 conference rooms, was refitted in the 90s to the tune of £900,000. I can understand why they didn’t use it. Must be a real dive.
