John Evans, the chairman of the Association of Chief Police Officers, has warned that the ambitious targets set by the government for the reduction of crime will be unachievable without a substantial increase in public spending.

The Financial Times (p6) reports that his remarks were made during a home office briefing announcing a five-year strategy to cut crime and measure police perfromance.

Sir John said: 'The targets being set by the government are very demanding, and some of them are unachievable. There is a fear within the police force that we don not have the resources to meet the demands being imposed on us.'
