Yvette Cooper: More to police than crime fighting
Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper has said there is more to modern policing than simply fighting crime.
Speaking on The Andrew Marr Show, ahead of the publication of a report by the Independent Police Commission, Ms Cooper added that police numbers had a "serious impact" on crime figures.
However, she said the report by Lord Stevens was also about "a change in mindset" for the constabulary regarding community policing and crime prevention.
