Police Grant Report — 7 Feb 2018 at 16:16
That the Police Grant Report (England and Wales) for 2018-19 (HC 745), which was laid before this House on 31 January, be approved.
“to cut crime. No more, and no less”,
“frontline policing throughout the country as a whole has not changed-it has, in fact, slightly increased since 2010.”-[Official Report, 25 January 2018; Vol. 635, c. 421.]
“On 21 March 2017, prior to the Westminster attack on the following day, investigation of Khuram Butt”-
“was suspended. Investigation of the other SOIs”-
“investigated under the operation had been suspended the previous week, due to resourcing constraints brought on by a large number of P1 investigations”-
“dealing with this uplift in work at the moment is a real stretch”,
“Given that we now have a growing number of subjects of interests we are investigating and a very big growth in the number of investigations…we have a bigger proportion of our investigations that are at the bottom of the pile and getting little or no work at the moment.”
“My 11-year-old does not keep fiction books under the bed – do you know what he keeps? He keeps hockey sticks. He has an evacuation plan where he takes his seven-year-old sister and a phone to the bathroom if we get burgled. We shouldn’t feel this unsafe in our own home.”
“It is not a matter of if, but when our house will be burgled. We feel like we are just waiting for our turn. What are we meant to do if someone tries to get in, the police don’t come out when we call 999 – what practically can we do?”
