Journalist Fury: Cost Of Not Issuing iPads To Police Not Enough To Save 500 Jobs

Unidentified Telegraph journalists reacted angrily today as plans emerged that Surrey Police are probably not going to issue their frontline officers with expensive Apple-branded products.

In fact, it appears likely that less expensive tablet computers are going to be issued only to a small number of officers on a trial basis.  "At a time when 500 officers are about to be laid off," wrote one correspondent, "it is infuriating that Surrey Police are spending a sum of money that might be enough to save one of those jobs, if they're lucky."
