Police chiefs’ warning on new cuts – Diane Abbott MP responds

You are here: Home / News / Press / Police chiefs’ warning on new cuts – Diane Abbott MP responds

23 Oct 2018
Diane Abbott MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to warnings by police chiefs that new cuts will leave the largest police forces in England and Wales with officer numbers last  seen in the 1970s, said:
“By slashing the policing budget even further the Government is pushing police forces into crisis. As violent crime rises, already overstretched officers are being asked to do even more with even less.
“The Tories insist they’re protecting police budgets, but the truth is that  their continued cuts are devastating our communities and leaving them at risk. You simply cannot keep people safe on the cheap. 
“Labour’s commitment to policing and public safety is clear. We will recruit 10,000 more police officers to keep our communities safe.”
