Cut Crime Not The Police

Police Cuts Web Banner







The Tory-led Government's 20 per cent cuts to policing go too far too fast and are already having a damaging impact on police forces across the region.

Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary has estimated that these front-loaded cuts will lead to the loss of over 16,000 police officers over the next 4 years. The latest figures show that 1,131 police officer posts will be lost across the North East and Cumbria.

Northumbria Police, the region's largest force will see reductions of 627 posts, Cleveland Police loses 224 police officers, Durham loses 192 police officers whilst Cumbria will face a reduction in 88 police officers.

Labour is committed to prioritising policing, keeping Bobbies on the beat and protecting the public.
