Leicestershire Police still needs to find £20million in savings over the remainder of the Comprehensive Spending Review period.
I intend to work with partners, not only to raise our game regarding those unfortunate enough to become victims but also to ensure that known repeat offenders receive the appropriate support to help them out of their spiral of crime.
I remain confident that by embracing new working practices, by dealing with problem issues in concert with our partners, and by drawing on the excellent work of the voluntary sector and others, we can – and we will – deliver safer communities in 2013 and beyond
