This PM Doesn’t Care for Law and Order !

This Prime Minister is ignoring local communities calls for more Police, and more of their  national tax pounds to be spent on our West Midlands Police force.

We all know that crime is rising, that burglary and vehicle theft levels here in Wednesfield is unacceptable, shop theft and violent crime is at high and unacceptable levels. The Police suffer because residents lose faith in them, when they do not turn out for the crimes they suffer.

Residents are now starting not to report crime, as Police stations close, as they see less uniforms to talk to on the beat. Less uniforms to tell them what is happening with regards to anti social behaviour and other crimes that take place. The Police are becoming rarer and you very rarely see an Officer above the rank of Sargent!

The Police do not have the resources we want them to have, to police our communities in a way that we want. Neighbourhood policing is dead if you can not get the uniforms out there, mixing  with the community!

Our Prime Minister seems oblivious to our every day needs, as she lives in a bubble, and is cosseted by the very best of British policing.

Yet her record is a disaster. She has axed 21,000 Policemen and women. If Labour had overseen this in Government the newspapers would have never left the situation a lone. It would have been headlines every day!

I may be on my own in thinking this….but I am worried about law and order in this City.
