Devon and Cornwall's new top cop insists police cuts will not affect the service for local communities.

Chief Superintendent Julie Fielding admits changes to pay and pensions are hitting morale.

But she tells Pirate FM they are doing all they can to cut crime, in the face of rises: "I see my role very much as improving morale and improving public service. Yes we have had a small increase in crime this year, but what we're doing is reviewed our performance systems and actually have the processes in place to tackle those rises as they appear.

"One of my priorities is about maintaining visibility, community engagment and problem solving. Obviously the localism agenda is just around the corner with the police crime commissioner coming in. What I expect to see is much more police community activity around what those priorities are".
