Cornwall and Devon's Crime Commissioner has pledged to "cushion the blow" of more cuts.

It comes after the government announced police budgets nationwide will drop by almost 6% next year and 5% the year after.

Our force has already lost 400 officers.

Tony Hogg says he will do all he can to keep numbers above 3000: "People are well aware how hard I have fought to keep police on our streets, and took the decision to raise the council tax policing precept by 2% to maintain numbers above 3000.

"Of course, I will need to see the finer details of these plans and discuss them fully with Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer.

"Rest assured that I, together with my team, will be doing everything in my power to cushion the blow and find ways of lessening the impact on all of us.

"We will have a clearer picture towards the end of the year when individual force level figures are released."
