The head of a police force praised by David Cameron for solving more crime with less money says continuing spending cuts would put public safety at risk.
Neil Rhodes, chief constable of Lincolnshire said his force could be the first to fall over, as he put it, because of having less money.
ITV News deputy political editor, Chris Ship reports:
The Chief Constable of Lincolnshire Police has warned that further cuts to his force could "compromise public safety" and bring an end to neighbourhood policing.
Neil Rhodes has written to Home Secretary Theresa May warning that more cuts could leave his force "unsustainable".
ITV News North of England Correspondent Damon Green reports.
The Chief Constable of Lincolnshire Police, Neil Rhodes, said it was not possible for his force to endure further cuts to funding without effectively demolishing neighbourhood policing in his county.
Speaking to ITV News Presenter Nina Hossain on the ITV Lunchtime News, he said:
"We have 1,220 officers, we now have 1,100, to take a further 236 officers out is simply not sustainable."
