Ministers do not know what impact the cutbacks have had on the police, according to the British regulator on government spending.

According to the national court, the Ministry of the Interior does not know whether the police system in England and Wales is "financially sustainable".

It calls the approach of police financing & # 39; ineffective & # 39; and & # 39; loosen & # 39; the changing demands of officers.

According to a spokesperson for the Ministry of the Interior, the department had carried out a thorough assessment of the pressure of the police last year.

The Ministry of the Interior, however, had not even predicted the effect of losing 44,000 police officers and staff since 2010, according to the NAO.

Since September 2009 – the last series of Home Office figures for conservatives in the government came – there is a cut of 22,424 police officers.
