All this new Unified Communication doesn't come cheap!!.especially CISCO brand name,which usually is four or five times dearer than any other company.
How does the North Wales Police Authority justify in spending on this yet NEW communications platform. When in one of the previous version of the "Y Glas" (a North Wales Police magazine) that the current communications system at that time (March 2006) was the best thing in the world.Apparently, that Forces in London and the rest of Britain are looking at the North Wales Police to learn from to implement into their force!! ( Well,clearly don't because they're changing it!!).

My worries are that,as a tax payer in North Wales that my tax contribution is going to technology like these which actually has the effect in turn of negating the police force to hire more employees to do the job,due to budget requirements.Money should be spent where it needs to be spent!
Everybody knows Mr Brunstrom recently wrote to ask for more money for his force and that he might have to cut jobs within the force in order to keep costs down.

So my question is WHY ANOTHER NEW COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM? When they already have a "super dooper one"!
My guess is that somebody has been told ALL the good points and NONE of the bad points of this new system!
