The thin blue line is set to be stretched even further, according to Hampshire Police Federation.
The Federation, which represents front line police officers, has been responding to a decision by Hampshire Police Authority to freeze the amount we pay towards policing Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
The Federation and Hampshire's Chief Constable wanted a 3.25% increase in the police precept.
The force has already cut hundreds of jobs and made savings of up to £50m.
John Apter, Chair of Hampshire Police Federation, told Isle of Wight Radio that the cuts will cause problems for an already stretched service: "The Police Federation are the first to say that the police service should take its fair share of pain. But this goes beyond fairness. The original cuts were far too deep, they were far too quick. And it was only because of the work of the Chief Constable and his team that the impact was not seen out on the neighbourhoods.
"Unfortunately, the decision that the Police Authority have taken today, I've heard the Chief Constable already say that this decision will mean that up to a further 100 jobs - both police officers and police staff - will be lost. That will have a negative impact on policing, it will have a negative impact on the communities across the Isle of Wight and it's a very, very disappointing stance that the Authority have taken. This will be seen as a real slap in the face by the police officers and the staff who work tirelessly."
