VIDEO: Police commissioner Tony Hogg reflects on first 100 days in office
Devon and Cornwall's police and crime commissioner Tony Hogg has set out the "second phase" of his job as he reaches a landmark 100 days in office.
In a wide ranging interview with the Western Morning News published tomorrow, Mr Hogg says it had been "non-stop" since his election in November with having to appoint a chief constable, lay out the region's first ever crime plan and agree a crucial budget rise.
Reiterating his commitment to putting victims at the top of his priorities, he also outlines his determination to tackling alcohol-related crime after witnessing the late-night policing of pubs and clubs in Plymouth at first hand.
"If one youngster needs eight officers to take them to custody just to keep them safe from hurting themselves we need to think about that and decide whether we want to spend our taxpayers money in that way," he says.

"We need to try to limit the impact in a range of ways - education, minimum unit pricing perhaps, multi-buys and very importantly proxy buying and pre-loading. We need to try to stop people drinking themselves unconscious."
