Is there a correlation between rising crime/falling police officer numbers?
"Yes, Yes. Yes," replied Chairman Ken Marsh on LBC this morning.
Ken added: "I ask the Commissioner regularly can we have more police officers. We do not have enough officers to deal with what is put in front of us."
This is a Prime Minister who caused these cuts to police when she was Home Secretary. She is now trying to absurdly trying to deny the correlation. Where are the community police officers gone to deter these criminals?
