According to Auntie, Labour have suggested that there could be 10000 police front line losses. Now obviously this is Labour scaremongering but may suggest that the police need to look at other areas before cutting 'bobbies on the beat'. One area is logistics - there appears to be no approach to collective procurement - different forces have different vehicles for the same task, different uniforms etc. Understand the needs of certain areas but a coherent approach would save money (procuring from a catalogue of types which would allow better discounts to be obtained).
