Tony Hogg backs Police Federation over funding

Devon's police and crime commissioner has backed the organisation representing rank and file officers, over its clash with the Home Secretary this week.

Teresa May accused the Police Federation's chairman Peter White of scaremongering after he said resources were so low that officers could only respond to emergency calls - and the bobby on the beat was an endangered species.

Tony Hogg says policing is facing a crisis and the Goverment funding cuts are forcing compromises in all aspects of its work.
