Putting our police at risk

the police force have made many drastic cuts and, in doing so, I firmly believe they have put the officers’ lives at risk.

The public have no idea about the lack of manpower in the Devon and Cornwall area or of the huge areas the police officers have to cover working alone with no immediate back up if any job went wrong.

I am the wife of a police officer and believe that the police force give no thought to the officers’ safety but only to targets and budgets.

I believe the public would be shocked and horrified if this was made public and think it should be exposed so the government would be shamed
