Police want Home Office 'reassurances' over shake-up

The Home Secretary will outline plans today for a new national crime-fighting agency, dubbed "Britain's FBI."

The move is seen as an attempt to make the police service more efficient and accountable.

Rob Garnham, chairman of the Association of Police Authorities, told BBC News the police service is already on an efficiency drive and wanted reassurances the new national plans would not affect local policing issues.
