There are fears crime could rise as Devon and Cornwall Police makes cut backs.

It has got to save £9 million this year.

It means stations could close and jobs are at risk.

Campaigners want more to be done to keep officers on our streets.

Stuart Roden is from Unison, he said: "The whole of the public sector is under tremendous pressure at the moment, but the police in particular is a front line public service, the public depend on them, clearly if those people are not there or there is few of them it is potentially going to put the public's safety in danger.

"Everywhere you look the things that the public rely on like the front desks, the phones, the PCSOs out there on the beat, if those staff numbers are reduced you have got to imagine that there is going to be a reaction to that. The most important thing is that the public are protected and their safety."
