I agree the government should do more to help, they should be given higher pay, invest more in police assets as well as give them greater powers, but instead they get treated like ****.
But I don't know if their right to annual leave are at risk because of Brexit, opinions?

I don't think Brexit has much to do with it. The police force 5 years ago isn't the same as it was 30 years ago.

The depression comes from seeing a dead child hit by a drunk driver, going to the parents house to tell them what happened, sit and listen to them break down in front of you, and then as you're walking back to your car someone shouts "pig" at you.That's probably where the depression comes from.

Unfortunately the Conservative party and the clowns who vote for them have driven the police force into the ground. Soft on crime, soft on the causes of crime.

The article does not talk about wages in the context of Brexit, merely that leave has been cancelled and it's driving moral further down.

It isn’t Brexit. It was Theresa May as home sec, then Amber Rudd.

The Tories have been grinding away at the country's police force for a while now, as much of a sh*tshow as Brexit is we can't really blame this on it.
