Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper said figures on the number of violent crimes dealt with by community resolutions are "extremely serious".
There has been a massive increase in the number of serious and violent crimes dealt with just by community resolution ever since the police cuts started - breaking all the expert guidance and promises from Ministers.
Offenders who admit to serious and violent crimes - including knife crime, domestic violence, and serious assault - are increasingly being let off with no criminal record, no justice, and not even a caution.
That's bad for justice, bad for victims, and goes against all the evidence.
