Policing – 20,000 more officers

Hi, I’m Rushi Millns and this is the police station at Kirkby.
The recent increase in serious violence is deeply worrying and sadly some people no longer as safe as they should.
It is the Prime Minister’s priority to make our streets safer and we’ve already begun work to do just that.
That’s why we’re putting 20,000 more police on our streets, giving them the powers, kit and backing they need, to extend their powers to stop and search and reviewing sentences so that we can keep serious criminals in prison for longer.
We’re sending a clear message to criminals: “We are coming after you.”
Meaning the law-abiding majority can live their lives free from the fear of crime.

Hi, I’m Rushi Millns and this is the police station at Huyton.
When I have been speaking to local residents they often mention local policing.
Specifically,
* We want to see police officers on the streets tackling anti social crime.
* We want traffic officers to tackle speeding on residential roads.
* We want to feel safe going out after dark
That is why the Conservatives are putting 20,000 more police on our streets and extending their powers to stop and search.
If I am elected as your MP I will make it my priority to lobby the Merseyside Police Commissioner for more community police on the streets here in Knowsley.
