Police forces could be placed in jeopardy in three to five years' times due to slashed budgets, watchdog Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) has found.
Continuing to apply the cost reductions in the same way in the next four years as they've been applied in these four years is not an option, and we're very clear that the viability of some forces could be placed in jeopardy in three to five years' time.
By that we mean they would have to cut too hard and too deep into neighbourhood policing and they may not be able to guarantee or maintain the service that we're currently seeing to the public.
