Cleveland Police has unveiled its plans to restructure the force in order to meet its new budget which has been cut under the spending review.
Temporary Chief Constable Jacqui Cheer says that the force must lose 300 officers by next year because of the cuts.
The new system will place Chief Inspectors into four districts within the force area who will lead policing teams.
