Keeping you safe –
Labour’s pledges on crime & security
We all want to live safely – free from crime and anti-social behaviour. More police on our streets will deter criminals and vandals.
Labour locally would strengthen our communities by:
- working with town and parish councils to employ more Police Community Support Officers on our streets and give them local premises to work from;
- launching neighbourhood crime prevention schemes so local people, community groups and the police can work together;
- supporting initiatives linked to mental health services and drugs programmes to encourage users to cut down/come off, and so minimize, drugs-related crime;
- investing in projects such as youth clubs that steer young people away from crime and anti-social behaviour by encouraging them to do something worthwhile with their lives.
