Police are not solving enough crimes despite the government's three-year police reform programme, MPs have said.

The detection rate is still too low in England and Wales, according to a report by the all-party Commons Home Affairs Select Committee.
Only 19% of reported crimes lead to an offender being punished by the courts, but the Home Office aims to raise the figure to 25% by 2008, the MPs noted.
The Home Office said its reforms had led to a 30% reduction in crime.
