London, UK (Times): Arresting and processing a British suspect takes four to five hours. "With a foreign national you may have to bring in an interpreter and have documents translated – that clogs everything up," Spence said. "As a result, it can take an officer the whole shift plus overtime to get it done. That means you don't have your policemen out on the streets doing what they were four years ago." Cambridgeshire's spending on interpreters has quadrupled since 2002 to £1m a year.
