On Saturday Ruth Cadbury MP, Labour Councillors and other party activists took to the streets in Hounslow and Chiswick to ask residents about their experiences of crime and anti-social behaviour. They heard about some of the impacts of over a decade of Conservative Government cuts to police services and the provision of youth services and other preventative interventions on local residents lives.
“Cllr Richard Eason, Osterley & Spring Grove ward said “It was sobering to hear how some residents are too frightened to go out after dark for fear of violent crime, and that Tory cuts to police numbers mean residents seldom see a police officer in their community”.
“The next Labour government will build on Sadiq Khan’s work in London to put more police on the streets, fund youth services, keep women and girls safe from violence wherever it occurs, and give neighbourhoods the funding to tackle crime and antisocial behaviour. All residents are invited to tell us what they think needs to be tackled by completing this online survey: www.labour.org.uk/crimesurvey “
