Stevens: Police should investigate every crime

A major report into the future of the police service will call for more officers to return to the beat and a guarantee that every crime reported is investigated.

The former head of the Metropolitan force, Lord Stevens, has led an independent inquiry into policing in England and Wales.

Writing for The Sunday Telegraph, he says that more criminals are escaping justice and that the service is seen by the public as "sadly deteriorated".
