Policing and Crime Debate

Today I spoke in the debate on Policing and Crime to welcome the 9% increase in Policing funding, 20,000 extra officers and tougher sentencing for serious crimes. 

I pushed the Minister to ensure that as many of these new officers as possible are on the front lines and visible in our communities. I've also campaigned for a new Police Covenant to back our officers behind the scenes, which will soon become law!
