Devon and Cornwall Police shy of declaring £65,000 expenditure on Common Purpose

In the reply dated Sept 2008 to a Freedom of Information request Devon and Cornwall police declare £24,709 expenditure on Common Purpose from 2004 to date Sep 2008. They unfortunately forget the £57,100.25 declared up to 6 December 2005. their total expenditure is therefore circa £64,972. A massive amount of public money spent on a political charity for no tangible benefit when Devon and Cornwall Police has repeatedly declared to the general public a shortage of money, forcing officers to share computers and for them to have to reduce the number of unmarked police cars. Are you happy for your taxes to be squandered in this way?
