Cambridgeshire's Chief Police Constable has outlined plans for his force to work much more closely with volunteers in future.

Simon Parr [pictured - right] is speaking in his latest YouTube video, put together by the force to answer resident's questions about big budget cuts.

The third of four short films, shown below, shows Mr Parr answering questions about how police performance is measured.

Mr Parr said: "We will minimise the impact of budget reductions on performance by working in collaboration with Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire and local council partners.

It's really important we understand what the problems are where people live and get involved in the community and listen.

Our aim is to transfer the fear of crime from the public to the criminal."
