Northamptonshire officers on the beat to avoid cuts
Northamptonshire Police said it has moved officers out of stations and back on the beat in a bid to avoid front-line cuts.
The county force will lose £17m over the next four years out of a budget of £130m.
Chief Constable Adrian Lee said 100 officers will be lost over the four-year spending review but back room staff were being re-deployed.
He said the force was working hard to ensure beat officers were unaffected.
He said: "We are going to lose money.
"I don't want to give a message that this is all doom and gloom, some police officers who were doing jobs in police stations are now out and about on the streets providing a visible presence and a better service."
