Labour believes that everyone should feel safe in their home, at work, and in their communities. For Labour, visible neighbourhood policing is the cornerstone of progressive policing – rooted in local communities, preventing crime, not just reacting to it. Labour left office with record numbers of police on the street, over 16,500 more officers than in 1997 and in addition nearly 17,000 new Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs). To stop the postcode lottery of neighbourhood policing, we need to examine how best to ensure every community has the number of officers and PCSOs it needs. The Tories’ plan is failing local communities who have seen neighbourhood policing eroded and more people getting way with serious and violent crimes.
As a NPF priority issue, we're holding a special policy forum in Carlisle to discuss our ideas.
