North Cornwall MP Dan Rogerson reckons officers have had enough of cuts

He said, "Morale is pretty low, I think it's fair to say, amongst the police. They're doing a fantastic job, but they are concerned about the future of the service, and about their own future careers."

"I've attended discussions with a number of officers who are at the front line, and they're feeling it pretty hard at the moment. They are concerned about the level of reduction in terms of the numbers of officers, but also one or two other changes which are being considered at the moment, and how that might impact on them."
