Police Wellbeing

Posted on 24th Nov 2018 in Campaigning

In early October I spoke to the Chair of Pubwatch about the number of burglaries on local pubs. It’s estimated there’s been 50 since August. 😯

After our conversation, on the 12th October I asked the Police & Crime Commissioner 11 basic questions. They said they didn’t hold the information and passed me on elsewhere on 22 October. I’ve still not had a response to these questions. The police work so hard but it’s clear they are understaffed and underfunded.

I asked about levels of sickness because I’m acutely aware that these cuts to the police, as well as making us all feel less safe, are negatively impacting the wellbeing of our officers, and this isn’t fair. 😞

We need answers to these questions and to put pressure on the government and PCC to properly fund our police service.
