Our overstretched Police force needs more resources if it is to effectively tackle crime in our community-and it’s not getting it from this Tory Government!
Eight years of Cuts to the police has been disastrous for the safety of our streets_ open drug dealing and ASB are the norm!
Since 2010, we have lost 476 Police officer posts in our area because of Tory CUTS of almost 20% to Humberside police’s budget, the latest bombshell to hit is an unexpected pension bill. To make it worse the Tories failure means that we will all pay extra council tax to cover or the front line officers will face the axe!
Our PCSO’s are the first line in community policing, helping to tackle ASB and crime in general, with intelligence gathering and patrolling our neigbourhoods. Yet they will be the first in line when it comes to cuts, how many of our 250 PCSO’s would have to go, if the Tories carry on with their utter contempt for services we depend on.
Since the Tories came to power:-
21,000 police lost
6,800 PCSO’s lost
Violent Crime soaring
2 Million unsolved crimes
It’s time for a General Election!
stop press:- They don’t even want to send criminals to jail-what next?
