Labour's ramped up its attack the Government's funding of the Police this morning.
Police spokesman Kris Faafoi is calling on the Minister Anne Tolley to come clean about the front-line effect of this year's Budget.
He says having no extra money in the pot means creates a cash crisis for the force.
Mr Faafoi says police have to funds a pay round, and meet the normal inflationary cost increases.
"And we know that they're going to have to find savings of around $120 million a year and you can't find that just by laying 125 non-sworn staff off, so there is going to be an effect of services on the front line and that's backed up by what the Police Association is saying."
