At long last the Tories have finally admitted to the damaging impact of their cuts to Police officer numbers – Haigh

Louise Haigh MP, Labour’s Shadow Policing Minister, responding to Sajid Javid finally recognising on the Andrew Marr show that the Tories have cut Police officer numbers since 2010, said:

“At long last the Tories have finally admitted to the damaging impact of their cuts to Police officer numbers.

“You can’t keep people safe on the cheap. With violent crime on the rise, it’s time for the Tories to do what everyone is calling for and hire more police officers.”
