Labour will stand up for you.
We will oppose Tory cuts to front-line officers to keep bobbies on the beat, prioritise neighbourhood policing and bear down on crime and its causes.
The Tories are not standing up for working people. They are putting families’ and the country’s prosperity at risk, cutting Police numbers and threatening community safety.
The Tories are not standing up for working people – their cuts to the Police are a risk to our communities. The Tories promised to protect the Police but over 15000 officers and hundreds of Community Support Officers have already been lost and further cuts in funding threaten even more losses to front-line officer numbers.
This poses a serious threat to community safety at a time when the demands on neighbourhood policing are increasing. Labour will stand up for you and our communities to keep them safe. We oppose the Tory cuts which would hit frontline officers.
Our Labour Police and Crime Commissioners will work with Police and local people to prioritise neighbourhood policing, keep bobbies on the beat and bear down on crime.
For the last four years our PCCs in the North East, Vera Baird (Northumbria), Ron Hogg (Durham) and Barry Coppinger (Cleveland) have been at forefront of campaigning for our region’s communities. They’ve fought back against government cuts, they’ve protected neighbourhood policing and pioneered action to tackle violence against women and girls.
The PCC elections on Thursday 5 May are an opportunity to send a message to the Tories opposing their cuts to the police and the risk they pose to neighbourhood policing.
Vote Labour for a party which will stand up for you.
