Police pay £660,952 in music licence fees

A Freedom of Information request by Robert Foulds, the clerk of Bramley Parish Council in South Yorkshire revealed that in the past year police forces in England and Wales paid £660,952 for licences so staff could listen to music in their offices. 

The Performing Right Society (PRS) collects the fees and pays royalties to artists.

The highest expenditure came from the Metropolitan Police which paid £246,297.
Four forces paid nothing, while 17 spent more than £10,000.

Something to remember when you hear these clowns whining about being short of money.
