Lancashire Police Federation fears cuts in officer numbers will lead to an increase in crime.
Chairman Rachel Baines (pictured) said: “The level of the cuts is now really starting to show - 700 officers less is a shocking number which takes us back 30 years.
“Officers’ main concern is public safety.
“How can they continue to deliver the level of service that they do now?
“The pressures on the front line are already immense and our concern is that a further reduction in officer numbers will equate to an increase in crime.
“The government needs to take another look at the cuts to policing and decide whether it really is safe to keep cutting back?”
But a Home Office spokesman said: “Crime is down by more than 10 per cent since the last election and has fallen by six per cent in Lancashire since last year alone.
Our reforms are working. Getting the economy back on track has meant a challenging funding settlement for police, but forces like Lancashire have shown an impressive ability to make savings while still cutting crime.”
Lancashire Police plan to increase Special Constables from 424 to 650, community volunteers from 280 to 580, and recruit 450 police cadets by December 2014.
Chief Constable Steve Finnigan said despite the cuts, public satisfaction levels were at 88.1 per cent and public confidence levels were at 88.6 per cent.
However, he said his concern was the sustainability of the “cherished model of policing that we have got in this country” if more cuts were requested.
He said: “The danger is going from a proactive model of policing to a reactive model.”
