No sign of unrest among Luton police

[Beds & Herts Tuesday Telegraph: June 3rd, 1919]

There are no signs of unrest among the members of the Luton Police Force, although it is understood that there are matters on which the constables are unanimous that improvements might be made.

The ordinary constables belong to the Union, and steps have recently been taken to indicate one or two concessions which it is desired the Watch Committee should make. Generally speaking, however, it is recognised that the Watch Committee of Luton is a progressive body and that the conditions of service locally compare well with other provincial Forces.

For the time being the prospect of a general strike in the country had disappeared, and it is to be hoped that on a review of the position, Luton will see to it that its Force is as generously treated, both in regard to pay and holidays, as the largest Forces of the country.
