Lib Dems would give Surrey Police an extra £3.6 million a year

Posted by Steve Gee on Friday 19 May 2017

The Liberal Democrats have announced that we would boost investment in police forces by £300 million a year. This is in stark contrast to the Conservatives, who have overseen devastating cuts to community policing. Theresa May, as Home Secretary, and now Prime Minister, has cut policing budgets by over £2 billion, eroding the very fabric of community policing.

Under the Lib Dems, Surrey Police would see a funding increase of £3,630,000 a year. This could be used to restore a visible policing presence in the community and ensure that the police have the training and tools to deal with the changing nature of crime.

This investment in our police force is absolutely vital. Under Theresa May, both as Home Secretary and as Prime Minister, our police have had to deal with the most brutal of cuts. These are now cutting to the bone.

The police work tirelessly to keep us safe and this Government have completely betrayed them. Our councillors know first-hand just how weak the local police team now is. We all know they are no longer out and about in the community.

Only the Lib Dems have a credible plan to reverse the increase in violent crime, boost community confidence and ensure the police have the resources they need to keep us safe.
