Cumbria Police's new chief constable will be expected to cut crime with fewer staff when he, or she, takes over the role in the summer.
Police and Crime Commissioner, Richard Rhodes, has said the force will have to recruit fewer officers in order to save £10million by 2017.
Despite this, the new police chief will make between £118,209 and £144,478. The top end of the pay scale is more than the Prime Minister's annual salary.
