In The Media & Newsletter » Margot Parker MEP - We have to ensure our police force is adequately funded and paid for
MEP for Leicestershire Margot Parker said she was concerned the number of arrests made by police in the county had nearly halved in the last decade.
She said: "This is most worrying.
"The Government's cuts to services - including the police - has led to this problem.
"Now is the time to conduct a root and branch review of policing, with a Royal Commission, which will establish what is required to ensure the police deliver a service to the public which is fit for purpose, both now and in the future.
"We have to ensure our police force is adequately funded and paid for."
