Remove the requirement to arrest where the victim refuses to support police

The police often have to take positive action and arrest offenders for the most minor offences. More frustratingly so when the injured party has no interest in making a statement or supporting a prosecution. This is a waste of time, money and resources. The police priority should be dealing with supportive and law abiding members of society.
