The recent terror attacks have shocked the Country and Labour has been quite rightly asking questions about how cuts to police from Tories has impacted on the prevention and reaction to major incidents. Cuts which were highlighted by the Police – see video here
In Cornwall we have been luck not to fall victim to these senseless attacks but routine policing is still feeling the impact of cuts as highlighted by a recent road traffic accident in Truro which Devon and Cornwall Police took the unusual step of announcing to the media that they didn’t have enough resources to deal with.
We need to take these warnings seriously. Voting Labour on June 8 will mean an extra 10,000 police officers on top of the other manifesto commitments on defence and boarder controls it can turn the tide of what seems like an increasingly unstable and insecure world.
