There is deep concern about police resources

Diane Abbott MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, in response to the latest data on terrorism arrests, said:“Labour is deeply concerned about the cuts that have been made to police officer numbers. As the recent Anderson report showed, counter-terrorism police and security services want to move towards greater reliance on community policing but that has been undermined by 20,000 police officers being cut under the Tories."There has been a record number of terrorism-related arrests but no comparable increase in the number of charges for terrorism offences which suggests problems about  the quality of intelligence and a lack of police resources.
"Labour has repeatedly argued that you can’t have security on the cheap. Labour will restore 10,000 police officers to make our policing more effective.”
