Policing and Crime — Recruit More Officers — Neighbourhood Policing — 29 Jan 2020 at 15:47
The majority of MPs voted not to call on the Government to both recruit 2,000 more frontline police officers than they plan and re-establish neighbourhood policing.
The motion rejected in this vote stated:
- That this House
- notes that since 2010 police officer numbers have been reduced by almost 21,000;
- further notes that some violent crime, including knife crime, has risen to record levels;
- notes that youth services, including early intervention, have been decimated by a decade of austerity;
- notes that prosecution rates have fallen sharply;
- notes that on current plans many police forces will still be left with fewer officers than in 2010; and
- therefore calls on the Government to recruit 2,000 more frontline police officers than they plan and re-establish neighbourhood policing.
