An extra 200 special constables are being promised for Cornwall and Devon over the next four years.

The new Police and Crime commissioner has repeated his pledge to safeguard rural policing.

Tony Hogg insisted hiking the chunk of council tax we pay for police will help keep officer numbers above three thousand too.

He said: "There's a mix of frustration, anger and a sense of needing something to be done about the issues to see a stronger element of policing, and a fair share of policing being diverted to the rural communities.

The pledge forms part Mr Hogg's new policing plan.

He said: "It addresses it in terms of reduction of crime overall, it addresses it in an improved service on the non emergency 101 so that police can report, and fundamentally of course, my role is to hold the police to account."
