How can police forces be more efficient?
Home Secretary Theresa May has outlined plans for a massive shake-up in policing in England and Wales. What would you change in the police?
The proposals include a new National Crime Agency, which will focus on cross-border organised crime and drug trafficking and will replace the Serious Organised Crime Agency, which was set up by Labour four years ago.
At a local level, police and crime commissioners, who will have powers to set police force budgets, will be elected by the people in 2012. This measure has already met resistance from some senior police officers.
Do you agree with the new measures? Will elected commissioners work? What would you do to make the police forces more efficient?
