Shadow home secretary David Davis spelled out his plans for a New York-style zero tolerance approach to crime at the Conservative Party Conference this week. He said the Government had "recruited 25,000 people who can't arrest anyone" adding: "We will respond by recruiting 40,000 police officers who can."
