Should police numbers be cut?
The home secretary has said that police "must do more" despite planned cuts. Is this reasonable?
Theresa May has told the Association of Chief Police Officers that she would be "ruthless" in cutting waste, but that the number of front-line police could increase.
The association's president Sir Hugh Orde had said it would be "misleading in the extreme" to claim police numbers were sustainable in the face of cuts.
Should the police force face cuts? Are you a police officer? How would you restructure the police force? Would removing certain standards free up police time?
